Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić has said he has never seen the alleged non-paper on redrawing borders in the Western Balkans and that Serbia has nothing to do with it.

Vučić was commenting on the controversial document allegedly authored by Slovenian Prime Minister Janez Janša, which proposes Kosovo joining Albania and annexing parts of Bosnia’s Serb-dominated RS entity to Serbia, while the country’s mostly Croat-populated parts would join Croatia.

The Serbian president stressed that he had never seen such a map and that “the fact that some want to blame Serbia for it only speaks about them,” referring to “certain groups in Montenegro, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Zagreb.”

“I can not agree to the unification of Kosovo and Albania, I must respect the territorial integrity of Bosnia and Herzegovina,” Vučić said on Saturday. 

The Serbian president said he advocates for the “existing borders of Serbia, with Kosovo  included” and the border with “Bosnia and Herzegovina, with Republika Srpska included.” “Peace and complete stability is the most important thing for us,” Vučić added. (EURACTIV.rs | betabriefing.com)
