Defence Minister Aleksandar Vulin confirmed that the Serbian Army delegation, which was going to attend the ceremony marking the Day of Jasenovac New Martyrs on Saturday, was denied entry to Croatia and stressed that Croatia should apologise for that.
“Croatian state should apologise for that, Croatian state should say it has nothing to do with this, and if it does, to explain how is it possible to prevent people from visiting the Jasenovac graves. Would any other country in Europe do this?,” a statement issued by the Defence Ministry carried Vulin as saying.
He also said that the world will probably stay silent about this but that the Serbs should not.
The Ministry earlier stated that the delegation's visit was timely announced and in line with usual procedures.
