Tomislav Nikolić, President of Serbia, 10.4.2013.

"We do not feel the need to justify ourselves because we have a history. To explain ourselves because during this history we were on the side of truth, on the side of the allies, defending our homeland. We have nothing to be ashamed of, but we have what to be proud of."

Tomislav Nikolić, President of Serbia


Oliver Antić, Advosir to the President of Serbia, 9.4.2013.

"President (Tomislav Nikolić) will present a 42-pages analysis that will demonstrate that the process leading up to the formation and the establishment of the ICTY were not 'lege artis' (according to law). The Tribunal has not fulfilled its role as justice and reconciliation in the region have not been achieved."

Ivica Dačić, Prime Minister of Serbia, 7.4.2013.

Dačić said that he "respects the Church, the Patriarch, and all the bishops, but thta the letter with the warning did not come from Peć, but from Belgrade. This supposedly indicates that the Serbian Patriarch left Kosovo already in 1690. (...) I never attacked them, but as indicated in one Church commandment, they should be praying for those in power, to make decisions in the interest of the state and the nation. (...) The message for the people is not that we should all be placed on a stake and suffer for 500 years in order for the clouds to go away. In the meantime, the people must survive"

Jadranka Joksimović, SNS, President of the Parliamentary Committee for the Control of the Security Services, 31.3.2013.

"What is a fact is that there is a lot of internal friction on the side of Kosovo Albanians and exactly this sort of internal political bickering and discontent can be used as an argument for possible violence. I do not believe in this scenario, but I would not say it is not impossible. Our security services diligently monitor the situation on the ground, they are ready to, in some, I hope inexistent, but bad scenario, react. Security services are on standby, but expect the negotiations should prevent conflicts and that, to this end, the international community will insist on the non-use of the argument for violence"

Veroljub Dugalić, Association of Serbian Bankers Secretary General, 29.3.2013.

"I do not think that the state should help our citizens whose savings money is deposited in Cypriot banks as there is no means for this, and no reason. Our citizens living and working in Cyprus should follow local rules, and we should not be distressed for those who never worked with that country but deposit money there. It would be interesting to know why they took their money there if we have incomparably higher interest rates. Everyone with more than 100.000 Euros of savings in Cyprus will be taxed at a rate of 30 percent in order to receive 10 billion Euros of EU aid. Banks in Cyprus accepted money without any control and accumulated some 70 billion Euros of deposits. This is around 80.000 Euros of savings per capita, whilst in Germany the average is about 40.000 Euros, and our, as we are most similar to the standard - 1.100 Euros. And the debt of their citizens is about 30.000 Euros, the EU average is 12.500, and in Serbia indebtedness is 710 Euros per capita."
