What is the difference between the territorial integrity of Ukraine and the territorial integrity of Serbia, which was violated in 1999, Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić asked world leaders in his speech at the United Nations General Assembly.
He stressed that Serbia respects the territorial integrity of Ukraine despite the consequences of the violation. own integrity.
“Everything we do here today seems relatively pale, our words sound hollow and empty compared to reality. That reality is that no one listens to anyone here, but only looks out for their own interests and rejects the rules on which this organization is based,” Vučić began his address in New York.
Referring to the current geopolitical situation, he said that “complex times require a lot of understanding and togetherness”, and he listed five basic challenges that UN members face: the return of peace and preservation of stability, respect for territorial integrity and sovereignty, energy security in crisis conditions, financial security poor and developing countries and food supply in the conditions of war cut supply lines.
In his speech, Vučić reminded that Serbia did not set foot on anyone’s territory, but that did not prevent NATO from attacking it.
“Many countries violated our territorial integrity and recognized Kosovo. Precisely because of what Serbia has experienced and is still experiencing, I have the right to quote the words of Martin Luther King as a reminder and warning for all of us: Injustice committed anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. Regardless of the fact that we are still feeling the consequences, we are not giving up on the principles of the United Nations,” said the President of Serbia.
He also expressed his gratitude to those members who unquestionably support the territorial integrity of our country:
“We owe special thanks to all those member states of the United Nations, and they currently constitute an unquestionable majority in this Assembly, who support the territorial integrity of the Republic of Serbia, especially in the area and territory of Kosovo and Metohija. It is additionally encouraging that the number of countries supporting Serbia’s positions increased in the period between the two sessions, which is a trend that must continue, because it is of particular importance to remain faithful to the basic principles embedded in the United Nations Charter, such as the principle of the inviolability of borders.
Vučić noted that Serbia is very patiently, with a lot of good will and without an alternative, looking for a compromise regarding Kosovo and Metohija, under the auspices of the European Union, and within the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina.
