Belgrade Mayor and Deputy President of the Democratic Party Dragan Djilas said that Europe must not apply dual standards for Serbia.

Belgrade Mayor and Deputy President of the Democratic Party Dragan Djilas said that Europe must not apply dual standards for Serbia.

Croatian Prime Minister thanked Generals Ante Gotovina and Mladen Markac for the operation Storm. That means that the prime minister of a country which is to become a member of the EU is thanking perpetrators of war crimes against Serbs convicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY), Djilas said.

If Croats thus share the European values and Serbs do not, what would happen if Serbian prime minister publicly thanked Serbian generals who fought against NATO, and who were sentenced for war crimes against Albanians, he said in an interview with the weekly Press published on its website.

President Tadic is ready to go to Srebrenica and pay homage the Bosniak victims, he is one of the few who daily insist on reconciliation in the region as a prerequisite for a better life for all, Djilas said.

Tadic is willing to risk his life and go to war against the largest drug cartels. But he does not do it to get praise from the EU but rather because it is something that is honorable and honest, Djilas said.

Djilas said that Serbia's EU membership is not a life goal, but a guarantee that rules ensuring better living will be respected by everyone in Serbia.

Europe has helped us a lot by forcing us to change for the better. But representatives of the EU are causing a revolt of the majority of citizens of Serbia by constantly treating us as the worst pupils in the European school, he said.

Anywhere where they have a large population, Roma do not get housing and a job just because they are Roma, and impoverished Serbia should not be asked to do that either, Djilas said.

He said that Europe should not ask Serbia to see the abolition of visas as a great reward for getting passing grades, because that is a right that belongs to every European.
