"There is a growing number of cancer patioents around the world, and it is not good to intimidate citizens that we will all die of cancer. It is not right and it is not true. There are areas in Kosovo that were more bomber with ammunition containing depleted uranium. Without serious research and evidence we cannot say that there are higher rates of morbidity from cancer in the areas that were bombed. Maybe there is, maybe there is not, but this has to be proven. (...) More must be done in the fight against cancer. Had we introduced early cancer detection programs earlier, like all European countries, we would not be having this problem now. If it was true that you suffer from cancer in Serbia due to ammunition containing depleted uranium, we could receive billions of dollars in reparations, but without evidence we can do nothing. You cannot talks about this in this way, with no evidence, you must compare the numbers of patients suffering from cancer and those who died from cancer in the area where depleted uranium has been used, with the numbers of suffering patients in areas that have never been bombed."
