Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has recently stated that he does not believe that NATO will ever apologize to Serbia for the 1999 bombing, as Czech President Milos Zeman did recently.
Vucic in a statement to the Czech media said that they will continue to repeat that they did the best they could and only wanted to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe.
“They will continue to repeat that they did their best and only wanted to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe. I do not believe in any official institutional apology from NATO. But if you ask me if Milos Zeman is the last president to do that, I do not think so. “It is the first, but it is not the last.” said Vucic.
Among other things, he stressed that the Czech president’s apology for the bombings was a “healing balm for the wound of the Serbian nation.”
“Do you know what this means for a small nation in Europe? Our small nation was attacked by 19 foreign countries, which will always say that they did it because of a humanitarian catastrophe, because of the children, because of everything. Instead, they killed 72 children in Serbia by bombing them. Was this the price we were forced to pay? Did they want to punish us this way? This really was not a lawful punishment. That is why President Zeman’s words are not only very important to me, but also raise my pride and the dignity of our nation. He could not make our citizens happier“, He said.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Bernabic, stressed that she is convinced that no one in NATO is satisfied that the Czech president apologized for the bombing of Serbia.
