Begehung des Gedenktages an die Opfer der NATO-Aggression

Am 24. März 2021

Der Präsident der Republik Serbien, Aleksandar Vučić, hat eine Rede anlässlich des Gedenktages an die Opfer der NATO-Aggression gehalten.

„Ihre Heiligkeit, sehr geehrter Vorsitzender des Staatspräsidiums von Bosnien und Herzegowina, sehr geehrte Präsidenten der Volksversammlungen der Republik Serbien und der Republika Srpska, sehr geehrte Präsidenten der Regierungen der Republik Serbien und der Republika Srpka, sehr geehrte Minister der Regierungen, liebe Gäste und Freunde, Vertreter des serbischen Volkes aus Montenegro, Nordmazedonien, Kroatien, vielen Dank dafür, dass wir auch heute Abend zusammen sind und der serbische Geist unbeugsam und unbesiegbar ist.

Ein Kind täglich und noch mehr. Das ist die schwerste, die peinlichste und schmerzhafteste Zahl der NATO-Aggression im Jahr 1999. Getötete Kinder, ohne eigene Schuld, sie haben keine Sünde begangen, sie hatten kein Recht auf Verteidigung, Gerechtigkeit und Leben.  

Nie hat man jemanden für das Verbrechen, das schlimmste unter allen Verbrechen, zur Verantwortung gezogen. Niemand war für 2500 getötete Zivilisten aber auch Soldaten und Polizisten verantwortlich, die nur daran Schuld hatten, dass sie sich und ihr Zuhause verteidigten. Niemand wurde für mehr als 6000 Verwundete zur Rechenschaft gezogen.

Selaković vor dem Europaausschuss des Deutschen Bundestages

Außenminister Nikola Selaković begann seinen offiziellen Besuch in Berlin mit einer Ansprache vor dem Europaausschuss des Bundestages, in der er sagte, dass Serbien, dessen außenpolitische Priorität die volle EU-Mitgliedschaft ist, sei weiterhin dem Dialog mit Priština verpflichtet, der unter der Schirmherrschaft der Union stattfindet, wies jedoch darauf hin, dass ein erhebliches Problem in diesem Prozess, ein Mangel an Vertrauen sei.

Selaković wies auch darauf hin, dass das Thema Kosovo und Metochien nicht nur für Serbien, sondern auch für die Wahrung von Frieden und Stabilität in der gesamten Region von größter Bedeutung ist.

„Ich bin überzeugt, dass dieses Thema daher auch für Deutschland wichtig ist, denn wir haben gesehen, dass sich jede Instabilität auf dem Balkan letztendlich auch auf die deutsche Gesellschaft ausgewirkt hat. Es geht darum, eine dauerhafte und nachhaltige Lösung für Kosovo und Metochien zu finden“, sagte Selaković.

Der serbische Außenminister Nikola Selaković erklärte heute in Berlin, er habe von den Mitgliedern des Bundestages Lob für die Ergebnisse der serbischen Wirtschaftspolitik gehört, vor allem seit der Zeit, in der Aleksandar Vučić Premierminister geworden ist, bis heute.

„Ich hatte die Gelegenheit, mich bei mehreren Treffen mit den Mitgliedern des Deutschen Bundestages zu treffen, die Einfluss auf die Politikgestaltung haben. Menschen, deren Rolle für den europäischen Weg Serbiens wichtig ist, aber auch Vertreter der deutschen Wirtschaft, deren Unternehmen und Kapital in Serbien investiert wurden und dank denen die Zahl der Beschäftigten in deutschen Unternehmen in Serbien heute Zehntausende beträgt“, sagte Selaković gegenüber den Reportern.

Er teilte mit, dass er viele Dinge hören konnte, die für uns wichtig sind, um zu wissen, wie wir in der nächsten Periode weiterarbeiten sollten, was als Versäumnis angesehen wird und worauf wir achten sollten.

Selaković: Ein Kompromiss und nicht, dass eine Seite alles bekommt

Das Wesentliche an Belgrads Position in Bezug auf die Beziehungen zu Priština ist, dass ein Kompromiss notwendig ist, der einen ernsthaften Ansatz impliziert, damit keine Seite alles, aber beide genug bekommen, sagte der serbische Außenminister Nikola Selaković heute in Berlin.

„Wir haben das wichtige Thema der Beziehungen zwischen Belgrad und Priština, den Dialog im Bereich der Normalisierung der Beziehungen, erörtert, und ich habe die Position Serbiens vorgestellt und die Unterstützung für den Sonderbeauftragten Miroslav Lajčak zum Ausdruck gebracht“, sagte Selaković auf einer Pressekonferenz nach dem Treffen mit Maas.

Selaković erwähnte, dass in dieser Frage das Wesentliche der Position Serbiens das ist, was Präsident Aleksandar Vučić immer sagt, und das ist eine Kompromisslösung, die nicht bedeutet, dass eine Seite alles und die andere nichts bekommt.

Selaković: Es wird Druck geben. Mit Argumenten Serbiens Position verteidigen

Der Außenminister Nikola Selaković sagte, Serbien könne sowohl von Brüssel als auch von Washington Druck in Bezug auf Kosovo und Metohija erwarten, und dass Belgrad um seine Position kämpfen und diese verteidigen sollte, um nationale und staatliche Interessen mit Argumenten zu beschützen.

„Es ist nicht einfach. Und ob es bei den Treffen in Berlin Momente gab, die nicht angenehm waren, ja sicherlich gab es die, besonders wenn sich unsere Positionen unterscheiden. Aber das ist noch ein Grund mehr, nach Berlin zu kommen, um darüber zu sprechen. Auch wenn man unzählige Male kommen müsse“, sagte Selaković am Ende seines Deutschlandbesuchs für Tanjug und beantwortete die Frage, ob Verständnis für unsere Position besteht und ob er Druck von Berlin und Washington erwartet.

Selaković fügte hinzu, dass es heute viel einfacher ist, Serbien zu vertreten als vor sieben, acht oder 15 Jahren, aber das bedeutet nicht, dass sich einige Dinge aus deutscher Sicht auf das Thema Kosovo und Metochien und die Beziehung zwischen Belgrad und Priština geändert haben.

4 March 2021

Minister of Foreign Affairs Nikola Selakovic launched his official visit to Berlin by addressing the German Bundestag Committee on EU Affairs where he stated that Serbia, with full membership of the EU as the foreign policy priority, remained committed to the EU-facilitated dialogue with Pristina while pointing to the lack of trust as a major problem in this process.

Minister Selakovic: Full EU membership remains a priority of the new Government

Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia Nikola Selakovic had talks today via video link with Head of EU Delegation in Serbia Sem Fabrizi and Ambassadors of the EU Member States.

On this occasion, the Serbian Foreign Minister emphasized that full membership of the EU remained one of the key foreign policy priorities of the Serbian Government, and that the European integration process was a strategic goal also aimed at promoting the quality of the society.

Minister Selakovic pointed out that Serbia was ready for an acceleration of the accession process' dynamic which is why it accepted the new methodology in the first place, and that it is now hoping that it will, in the period ahead, receive clearer guidelines on its implementation in the negotiating process.

The Minister said that Serbia has taken a number of important steps forward in the reform process, which were not fully reflected in the European Commission's Annual Progress Report.

The Minister reminded that our country opened 18 out of 35 negotiating chapters with the EU since 2014, provisionally closing two, and that it is at this point ready to open five new chapters.

Discussing the talks between Belgrade and Pristina, Minister Selakovic noted that the only right path towards a sustainable agreement was through dialogue and compromise.

He explained that it was necessary that topics of the talks include the issues being ignored by Pristina for years, despite having committed to them under the Brussels Agreement, such as the establishment of the Community of Serb Municipalities.

The Minister added that Serbia is deeply devoted to regional cooperation and that, as an important country of the region aiming to contribute to overall stability, our side has through its steps, among others, significantly contributed to decreasing the tensions with Montenegro.

Minister Selakovic also said that Serbia was very grateful to the EU and its Member States for the financial assistance, particularly amid the coronavirus pandemic.

STATEMENT BY THE MINISTRY OF FOREIGN AFFAIRS

On the occasion of 10 December, the international Human Rights Day, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Serbia reaffirms its commitment to the principles and values of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, adopted on this day in 1948.

The principles enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights have been the foundation for the development of international law in this field, and of the international system for the promotion and protection of human rights, as a unique achievement of modern civilization. It is incumbent upon us today to safeguard and strengthen the international system ensuring respect for human rights, to develop human rights standards, control the implementation of commitments, and also to continue cooperating with international and regional institutions on the protection of human rights.

Serbia is fully committed to the universal values of human rights and implementing in practice the international legal instruments relating to human rights. Our continued cooperation with the Human Rights Council mechanisms in the framework of the United Nations, with the Council of Europe and the mechanisms of the OSCE human dimension, represents an important segment of activities carried out by all state authorities, thus demonstrating our consistent commitment to the implementation of international human rights standards.

The international Human Rights Day is an opportunity to point out once again that Serb and other non-Albanian population is being deprived of its rights in Kosovo and Metohija and to call again on the international community to ensure the respect for the guaranteed international human rights norms and contribute to creating conditions for the return of internally displaced persons and giving them back their usurped property.
