Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić convened a meeting of Serbia’s National Security Council on Friday over the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo’s bid for membership in the Council of Europe.
Vučić was in Brussels on Wednesday at an informal meeting between the leaders of the Western Balkans and the EU leadership. In the afternoon, he met with EU Commissioner for Neighborhood and Enlargement Oliver Varhei, and in the evening he participated in a working dinner with the head of EU diplomacy Josep Borrell, along with Serb member of the Presidency of Bosnia and Herzegovina Milorad Dodik, Prime Minister of Albania Edi Rama, and other european leaders.
“Five minutes ago, Gervala submitted an official application for the entry of the so-called Kosovo into the Council of Europe. By this they showed that they had destroyed, grossly violated the Washington Agreement. After nine years of violating the Brussels Agreement, now the Washington Agreement. Our job is not to fall into hatred,” Vučić told reporters at a motor show in Belgrade on Thursday.
“In this regard, I have scheduled a meeting of the National Security Council tomorrow at 11.00 (12.00 Moscow time). In the coming weeks, we will do everything to show that we can fight, to do everything for our country,” the Serbian leader said.
