The former President of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, Slobodan Milosevic had the best intentions in Kosovo and Metohija, Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, but they led to worse results due to the underestimation Serb aspirations of other peoples, said the Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

September 8-9, Vucic visited Kosovo and Metohija. On Sunday in the centre of the Northern, predominantly Serb part of Kosovska Mitrovica in front of the stage gathered thousands of local residents with national flags. In his address to the nation Vucic recalled the mass meeting of Milosevic on the site of the historical battle with the Ottomans in Gazimestan near Pristina on the 600th anniversary of the battle 28 June 1989.

«Nearly thirty years ago not far from here hundreds of thousands of people — and Slobodan Milosevic was then large enough to gather so many people on Gazimestan — listened to his speech, famous and not so famous, depending on the interpretation, remember?» — addressed the audience the current President of Serbia. He reminded the audience that after the famous phrase of Milosevic «nobody beat you,» the Serbs were in the Patriotic enthusiasm, the choir sang a war song and triumphed.

«In that song refers to the three wars, and then we had another war. Not by, but not solely on someone else’s fault. Formally and informally we help the brothers, the Serbs were killed in (the former Republic of Serbian Krajina in Croatia) Knin, Sarajevo and Pristina,» said the Serbian President.

He noted that after the conflicts in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina 1991-1995, and the war in Kosovo and Metohija 1998-1999 left of the Republic of Serbian Krajina, the Sarajevo Serbs living in fifty times less than it was before the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina and in Kosovo Pristina there are only a few people.

«Milosevic was the great Serbian leader, his intention, anyway, was the best, but our results were much worse. Not because he wanted to, but because the desire was unreal. And the interests and aspirations of other Nations we have ignored and underestimated,» — said Vucic.
