Serbian ambassador refused to receive Croatia’s “insulting note”


BELGRADE – Serbian Ambassador to Croatia Mira Nikolic has refused to receive a note from the Croatian Ministry of Foreign Affairs due to its “insulting content.”

Speaking in Belgrade late on Thursday, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic told reporters that Serbia previously sent a protest note to Croatia regarding the incidents on Wednesday in the Croatian town of Srb, and because of many others that have escalated in the neighboring country.

“On one hand, although Serbia is doing nothing that would provoke Croatia’s reaction, Croatia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has called our ambassador to deliver a note to her, and our ambassador has refused to take it, due to not only its insulting content, but also because of the insult itself, to all of Serbia,” Dacic said, according to a Beta agency report.

The minister in the caretaker government added that Serbia was not provoking anyone, but reacting to what is happening in Croatia – “to all the judgments that lead to a rehabilitation of the fascist Ustasha NDH (Independent State of Croatia).”

Dacic said that Serbia will continue the policy of developing good-neighborly relations, but also of protecting its national and state interests.

“For the Germans, Hitler is a symbol of evil, and only in Croatia, the fascist NDH creation and her priest Stepinac are proclaimed heroes, martyrs and saints,” said Dacic, who made the comments in Belgrade while attending the promotion of a book about Winston Churchill.

Earlier, Serbia sent a protest note after a Croatian court overturned the 1946 verdict against Catholic cleric Alojzije Stepninac, which was followed by a strong reaction from Croatia.

Croatian Foreign Minister Miro Kovac said it was “a cheap attempt to destabilize Croatia” adding that its language was “reminiscent of the times of Slobodan Milosevic.”


  1. Croatians are just sold out Serbian souls. They were Orthodox and sold themselves to the Catholic Cult. They enjoyed killing Serbians and still do, as if we were their mortal enemies when in fact they are Serbias worst enemy. Everyone sells out the Serbian people even their own people. But a big karma is waiting for the Croatians in which they will experience of all the butchered souls that will come back to haunt them. There will be a disaster in Croatia in which they have never seen. They are a godless people without a soul and don’t care how much they think they believe in the Catholic church. You are praying to the wrong side. So mote it be.
