BELGRADE – During its OSCE chairmanship, Serbia was trying not to cross the line of partiality but, at times, there are resolutions that are so harsh that Serbia cannot back them because it has its own interests, Serbian FM Ivica Dacic said Thursday.
There are resolutions that cross that line, Dacic told reporters when asked about a recent UN General Assembly resolution urging international monitoring of the human rights situation in the Crimea, which Serbia voted against.
“The wording, the tone and the manner in which Russia is described in that document was unacceptable for Serbia,” he said.
If Serbia were to back such a resolution, it would be difficult to retain the good relations with Russia, Dacic said.
Serbia will face no consequences for not supporting the resolution as it is pursuing an autonomous foreign policy, he said.
