Excerpts Video

"Serbia deserves a European future. And most Serbs –all polling data demonstrates and the last, the presidential elections demonstrate – want a European future. Now, it’s up to Serbs what their future is. But Serbia’s European path and European road is not going to be blocked by any country. The only barriers between Serbia and its European future will be those it places for itself. They can block their own road; no one will block the road for them."


"Much work remains to be done. But now Kosovo is free to develop its institutions, to build up its economy, to bring in investment, both small and large, and to realize its future as a European nation, in undivided Europe."
