Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic recalled, speaking on Wednesday at the 77th session of the UN General Assembly, the precedent of Kosovo in connection with the issue of the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
“Serbia supports the territorial integrity of all UN countries, including Ukraine. But the truth is that the territorial integrity of Serbia was violated, and Serbia did not attack anyone, no other sovereign country, few people talk about this. I would like to ask the leaders a question many countries, tell me, what is the difference between the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine and Serbia? In the second case, there was a serious egregious violation, and you internationally recognized this and gave legitimacy, at least some of you,” Vučić said.
The Serbian President recalled that the republic had never violated the sovereignty and territorial integrity of any country, but “this did not prevent 19 rich sovereign countries – NATO members from attacking our country, undermining sovereignty without the consent of the UN Security Council.”
Vucic quoted Martin Luther King as saying that injustice in one place leads to injustice everywhere. “The principle of inviolability of borders should apply to all countries,” the President stressed.
