Dacic slams EU decision as disgraceful, humiliating for Serbia

"If Croatia, as a country that committed genocide against Serbs in the Ustasha, fascist Independent State of Croatia and where the Ustasha salute is still heard, a country that expelled over 200,000 Serbs in 'Operation Storm' and committed ethnic cleansing, is going to be a benchmark for joining the EU, then the question whether we are heading in the right direction is rightly asked"

BELGRADE – Serbian First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic was shocked after the EU decided on Thursday not to open negotiation chapters 23 and 24 in Serbia’s accession talks while also deciding to open new chapters with Turkey and Montenegro.

“It is a disgraceful, incomprehensible decision that is humiliating for Serbia. It is a result of a political intent to halt or slow down Serbia on its European path. It represents open political pressure on Serbia to give up on its clear policy of protecting its state interests,” Dacic said, announcing that he would propose to Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic that consultations on further foreign policy moves be held urgently ahead of the Paris summit.

Serbia has fulfilled all requirements in the EU talks process, it is crucial to regional stability and it is making great efforts in reforms that will create a modern European country, Dacic noted.

“That is why the EU needs to stop the tragicomical explanations that it is Croatia and the UK that are blocking us. No – the EU is blocking us, because no one can convince me that the entire EU is no more influential than Croatia,” Dacic said.

“If Croatia, as a country that committed genocide against Serbs in the Ustasha, fascist Independent State of Croatia and where the Ustasha salute is still heard, a country that expelled over 200,000 Serbs in ‘Operation Storm’ and committed ethnic cleansing, is going to be a benchmark for joining the EU, then the question whether we are heading in the right direction is rightly asked,” he said.

  1. no the question shouldn’t be “rightly asked”, It’s already been answered. Serbia neither needs nor as a people WANTS to be part of the broken mess that is European Union. All the rats are fleeing the sinking ship, now is not the time to get on-board.

  2. If the Serbia government were smart it would stay OUT of the EU like Norway, Switzerland and Iceland.
    The EU is a dishonest hypocrite broker which uses double standards and will trap Serbia from having alternatives, such as friendship and special trade with Russia, and also countries in trade blocks with Russia.

  3. “It represents open political pressure on Serbia to give up on its clear policy of protecting its state interests.”

    This statement is striking. I guess it’s just time to give up protecting your interests, then. :/

  4. At the end of WWI when the Serbs provided the first victory at Cer, Serbia and marched from the Salonika Front all the way to the Gates of Austria to liberate Serbia, it was more than obvious that the Serbs would be victorious. There are over 40,000 Serbian tombstones in the cemeteries at Salonika. Serbs invented the “WALL” that is worshiped in Washington D.C. after Americans loss the Vietnam War and can only praise their dead for losing. American troops returned home to be spit on and ridiculed… These are the same American hypocrites who mock the Serbian people for commemorating each year the loss of 77,000 souls in one day on the Field of Blackbirds in Kosovo in 1389—a war against Muslim aggression, terrorism and over 400 years of occupation in the Balkans. WWI was also the destruction of the Austrian Empire and the Ottoman Empire. Serbs have no need to feel inferior.

    With Serbs victory in WWI, Croatians, like rats fleeing a sinking ship, ran into the arms of their Serbian enemies and Prime Minister Churchill and his ilk convinced the Serbs to accept their former enemies and embrace a “South Slav Unity,” an empty phrase that masked the true ambition of the Croats whose only desire was to hoodwink the Serb until they could gain their dream of a Croatian state.

    Twenty Three years later the outbreak of World War II saw the deceptive Croats again join with Serbia’s enemies, the German Nazis, to fight their neighbors and to destroy every ounce of that so called “South Slav Unity.” The Croats liquidated over 1.5 million Serbs, 60,000 Jews and 70,000 Roma and today they wave their checkerboard flag as a sick Nazi victory. They got their wish in finally creating a Croatian State in 1991 by amputating territory from Yugoslavia, territory they never owned in the previous 1,000 years as slaves of the Austrians.

    Croats suffered the slings and arrows of their own greed and ambitious ideas. With an unemployment rate exceeding 25% in 2013 as a result of their war with the Serbs they believed that by joining the EU the Croats could turn the tables against their neighbors by blocking Serbia’s entry into the EU that now looks like they are doing the Serbs a big favor.

    Serbs who do not suffer from amnesia clearly remember that the war in Croatia started in 1991 when Prime Minister of Yugoslavia, Ante Markovic, a Croat, ordered the Serbian army to attack Croatia—then like a thief in the night he resigned his post as PM and fled to Croatia knowing full well that the result of his orders would open “Pandora’s Box” of ethnic violence between the Croats and the Serbs. Today there are some Serbs who wish to climb in bed with these criminals who helped to do $100 Billion in damage to Serbia. With Great Britain voting to leave the EU we are witness to the possible exodus of other nations and the Croats once again will become rats fleeing a sinking ship.

    Serbia would be insane to want to climb in bed with an enemy that three times in the past 100 years have tried to destroy Serbs through Genocide if necessary… fascists songs and salutes still occupy too many hearts and minds in Croatia that reveal their true nature, their lack of trust and the rebirth of their Nazi ideas.

    Serbia needs loyal friends like Russia, China and Japan who wish to build bridges not blow them up. Serbia deserves relationships with those who wish to see Serbia succeed instead of those who secretly want to make them disappear. The EU is broken, it is dominated by an elite set of bureaucrats more interested in their power and in lining their own pockets as they amputate sovereign territory and destroy democratic principles—all while forcing those countries to pay the tab and making those without a voice pay for their own demise. What Serbian in their right mind would want to join such a criminal enterprise?
