Former Serbian President Boris Tadic has stated that there is a big difference between Serbia in his term and Serbia in the term of the current president, Aleksandar Vucic. Tadic said Vucic has not changed at all since the 1990s, but only his rhetoric and what is useful to him.
In the N1 show in Sarajevo, in which the topic was hate speech in public space in the region, Tadic said that during his tenure, Serbia, in co-operation with The Hague tribunal, respected its laws and the Law on Co-operation with the Tribunal, it was also an international law.
According to Danas, he believes he contributed to the idea of reconciliation and that part of that idea was cooperating with The Hague, arresting all those indicted for war crimes and crimes against humanity, and he says he would repeat the same thing and respect the law.
”The sentence at the Hague Tribunal deprives Serbia of responsibility and transfers it to individuals, but Vucic can not get out of his horizons,“- said Tadic.
Asked how different Serbia was “in his time” in relation to Serbia today, he says there is a big difference, because Serbia today is run by people who were advocates of the war option, and are now advocates of the pro-war option. european. He noted that the policy makers of the 1990s are now in power in Serbia and that is why we have the same reactions to events in the region.
