Foreign Minister: Croatia should simply condemn attacks against Serbs Izvor: Tanjug / Sava Radovanović

Commenting on the Croatian President's statement that “not every incident is ethnically motivated violence,” Serbia's Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said he never heard of someone being beaten in Serbia simply for watching Croatian FC Dinamo, adding that Croatia should simply condemn such incidents, Tanjug wrote Sunday.

"I never heard that anyone in Serbia was beaten up because he was watching FC Dinamo. Croatia should simply condemn such incidents," Dacic told TV Pink.

On Friday, Croat President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarovic said she condemned the violence against Serbs near the city of Knin, but added that "not every incident that happens between Croatian citizens of different nationalities can be qualified as ethnically motivated violence."

She said she would not “allow that in Croatia because it's very unpleasant and irresponsible when politicians start commenting on and labelling those incidents, either by ignoring facts that are established in an official investigation or by not caring about those facts at all
Dacic, however, believes that there is a continuity of an anti-Serb campaign in Croatia, regardless of the election campaign which is underway in that country.

"They deny their crimes from the past and insist on the crimes committed by Serbs in the 1990s. We should have a common position and condemn all crimes," Dacic said, wondering if it was normal to still talk about that in 2019 and "to want to continue to live in tribal conflicts even today."
