ALEKSINAC – Serbia will not accept any blackmail, Labor Minister Aleksandar Vulin said on Saturday, underscoring that Brussels should now show whether it cares about Serbia, as Belgrade’s further moves and the Serbian people’s sentiment toward the EU will depend on this decision.

“It is wrong to ease Croatia’s frustrations at Serbia’s expense, for Croatia- in the first place. This is no longer an issue for Croatia – this is an issue for Brussels. Brussels is the one that should demonstrate whether it cares about Serbia and whether it cares about Serbia becoming a member of the European family,” Vulin said in Kulini, referring to Croatia’s decision to not give the green light to Serbia for the opening of talks on Chapter 23.
