We will not tolerate any attempts to rewrite the history of the Second world war nor the events that took place in the Balkans 25 years ago. We will do everything to defend such approaches, which would not infringe upon the interests of Serbia. This country plays an important and positive role in ensuring this stage of peace and stability in the region. Once again, thank our Serbian friends for their hospitality and a very useful joint work.”
