Serbian diplomat: Preservation of peace is absolute priority for any nation

“In the recent history of Serbia, the saddest day is certainly 4 August 1995. On this day, 4 August, the country observes the Day of Remembrance for Serbs killed and expelled in [the U.S.-supported] Operation Storm which was the most brutal operation in Europe after the Second World War,” the diplomat said. “During the operation, about 2,000 Serbs were killed, and 220,000 to 250,000 Serbs were expelled from Croatia, which was the largest ethnic cleansing on the European continent,” the diplomat [Chargé d’Affaires Savo Durica ] said.

“Serbia is sincerely grateful to Belarus for its steadfast, consistent and principled support for Serbia’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. Serbia highly appreciates Belarus’ unwavering stance on non-recognition of the self-proclaimed Kosovo and the support provided to Serbia in international organizations on this matter,” Savo Durica emphasized.
