Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic

Aleksandar Vucic - Serbian lawyer and politician. Aleksandar Vucic was born on March 5, 1970 in Belgrade.

said he will not travel to Tirana on December 6 for the European Union-Western Balkans summit, noting that Albin Kurti's decision to appoint Nenad Rasic as a minister in the Kosovo government did not receive the condemnation it deserved from the EU, Serbian national television reported RTS.

President Vučić called Rasić's appointment "shameful" and explained that it was "the mildest word that can be used".

"This man (Rašić) won less than one percent of the election, as did Rada Trajkovic, who was on his list. This shows that they want to persecute and expel the Serbs from Kosovo and Metohija. I am not sure that tomorrow there will be negotiations with European Commissioner Oliver Varhey after my words and our decisions in the meantime, Vucic told Pink TV.

Vučić noted that all democratic principles and norms were violated, according to which someone who received a lot of votes is elected or nominated, and not someone who received one percent of the votes.

Vucic stated that "in Pristina they thought it could be done this way".

"They chose the worst Serbian scum from the bottom of the bucket - Rasic, Rada Trajkovic.

There are simply no worse ones, said the Serbian president.

They have no one's trust, but they have the trust of the "terrorist scum Kurti, the western agencies who put them there thinking they will destroy Serbia".

"They thought they would scare us with this. You can destroy the president of Serbia, you can organize protests in Serbia again, you can kill me, whatever you want. For me, Kosovo is the biggest Serbian sanctuary. Serbia is a sanctuary. Better to be gone than to give it to you and I will not give it to you," said Vucic. 

As a result of this decision, no one from Serbia will be present in Tirana for the EU-Western Balkans summit on December 6, the Serbian president said.
