What a Difference a Year Makes - Comparative reading and analysis of the April 2018 and August 2019 draft versions of the National Security and Defense Strategies

In the new Report, What a Difference a Year Makes, the Center for Euro-Atlantic Studies from Belgrade (CEAS) presents a comparative analysis of the draft versions of the new National Security Strategy (NSS) and National Defense Strategy (NDS), which the government of the Republic of Serbia approved on 8th August 2019 and passed on to the National Assembly for consideration, in versions that had undergone public discussion back in the spring of 2018. Bearing in mind all the significant changes of circumstances on global, regional and local level that have happened since spring 2018 on one hand, and some significant nuances in the  new versions of Serbian strategic documents endorsed in late summer 2019 on the other, CEAS calls this report – What a Difference a Day Makes - a tribute to its songwriters in Spanish and English, and especially to Dinah Washington and her legendary album What a diff”rence a day makes!

CEAS osuda izjave Jonuza Musliu

CEAS najoštrije osuđuje izjavu  Jonuza Musliu, predsednika Skupštine opštine Bujanovac i predsednika Nacionalnog saveta Albanaca u Srbiji u kojoj on podržava ranije izjave albanskog premijera Edija Rame i kosovskog predsednika Hašima Tačija o uniji Albanije i Kosova te ocenjuje sledeće:  "Unija Albanije sa Kosovom je bez preševske doline, bez Medveđe, Bujanovca i Preševa besmislena. Sada je ključni trenutak da Albanija i Kosovo pokažu Srbiji da je to deo Albanije u koji ne treba dirati….. Rama i Tači imaju moralnu obavezu da u "ovo spajanje" uključe i istočno Kosovo…. A ako se to ne dogodi, to će biti "nacionalna izdaja". Preševo, Medveđa i Bujanovac su  sastavni deo "države Kosovo", od koje su "nasilno odvojeni…. Zato smo vodili naš oslobodilački rat. Ovaj cilj postoji zapisan u srcima i duhu albanskog naroda. To je potvrđeno 1. i 2. marta 1992. godine i mi nemamo pravo da odustanemo od nečeg za šta su se žrtvovali pripadnici OVPBM….Svestan da se to neće dopasti Srbiji, kao što joj se nije dopalo ni otcepljenje Kosova. Bez Niša, ovo nije 'Velika Albanija' i Srbija čak treba da nam bude zahvalna što Albanci traže ujedinjenje samo Albanije, Kosova i preševske doline".
