This news, as they say, received the letter from informed circles, it was delivered to the Serbian Embassy in London and so far there is no confirmation that it has been delivered.
- Your Majesty, I'm speaking to you personally, aware of the fact that my remarks could be interpreted as undiplomatic, but I have to, in order not to create error and return the Balkan region back into hard times of conflict that we all have to forget - said Nikolic to Queen Elizabeth.
- Could you please devote attention to a serious issue that could spoil years of Serbia's efforts aimed at giving our modest contribution to the overall stability of Southeast Europe.
In fact, it is word of a draft resolution on Srebrenica, which the UN Security Council filed in your country," the Serbian president wrote in a letter dated July 2nd.
- We are a nation quite different from the others that are similar in size or power. Whenever we were attacked throughout history, we opted for resistance and struggle for freedom. In many opportunities our procedures matched the established international position, fighting and goals of your nation. We never wanted to give up, to step back, or that others define us for what we were going to define. That view was very demanding, often dangerous, but at the end bore relief and it is healthy for our spirit - the letter says.
Nikolic added - I have in mind, among other things, the First World War and the Second World War, in which Serbs gave greatest possible sacrifice. In this war we lost two million of the youngest, brightest and bravest people, which has resulted in a radical reduction of our population and prospects for the future.
- All this was done in the belief that freedom and dignity of man is of superior value. We've never been good at calculating the cold of our role and intent, but we are guided by feelings - said the Serbian president.
- I believe that you know that the Serbs fought against the Turks, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the Germans and then their Reich. We have challenged many others, even NATO in 1999, in the belief that we have to defend the territory of Kosovo and Metohija, which historically belongs to us - Nikolic added in the letter, addressed to "Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, London.
