The President of Serbia Aleksandar Vučić spoke last evening at the General Debate of world leaders within the 77th session of the United Nations General Assembly, and on that occasion, he reminded that Serbia had never attacked another nation’s territory, nor has it threatened the territorial integrity of any country.

“That did not stop the NATO from attacking a sovereign country, and doing so without a decision by the United Nations Security Council. The fact that an agreement had been signed with the NATO following the finalization of the armed conflict, the provisions of which provided for the adoption of the United Nations Security Council Resolution no. 1244, which confirmed and guaranteed the partial sovereignty and full territorial integrity of Serbia, did not stop many of the Western countries from repeatedly trampling the territorial integrity of our country by recognizing the unilaterally proclaimed independence of the so-called Kosovo. It is precisely because of this experience that Serbia has been through and is still going through that I am convinced that I have the full right to quote here in this place the great Martin Luther King: Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,” said the President, which was met with applause.

According to him, in spite of the fact that Serbia itself is feeling the consequences of the flagrant violation of the basic provisions of the international public law, it will not give up on the fundamental principles of the United Nations.

“We will continue to advocate for the consistent adherence to the principles of the inviolability of borders and respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of all other member states of the United Nations. In spite of this position of ours, many people in this room to this day have a problem with respecting the territorial integrity of Serbia. You wonder why? It is because they have the power, and in their eyes we are small and weak. However, as you have been able to hear, we do have the power to speak the truth in this place,” pointed out the President.
