TANJUG_maliBELGRADE – Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic announced Monday he had written to EU officials to express concern over developments in the region and point to a sheer anti-Serb policy, in Croatia in particular.Those developments are a serious threat to regional stabiltiy, Vucic told a press conference.

He said he had sent a letter on behalf of the government Monday afternoon to European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini, Enlargement Commissioner Johannes Hahn and European Parliament President Martin Schulz.

“We listed what we have faced over the past period, showing factographically what Serbia has had to endure, from monuments being erected in a EU country to prominent convicted terrorists, rehabilitations and overturning of convictions of criminals from WWII and recent wars, to people who have been convicted in Serbia and then sent to Croatia to serve their prison sentences now splashing about in the sea due to alleged illness, rather than being in prison,” Vucic explained.

There are countless things indicating the manner in which a sheer anti-Serb policy is being pursued, in Croatia in particular, Vucic said.

Serbia has not provoked anyone or made a single wrong move, except that it voiced its disapproval and reacted by sending protest notes over those events, he said.

We want the EU officials to say if and what Serbia has done wrong in this context, Vucic said.
