“AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE”
Belgrade 31 January 2008 – “I am not here to tell you who to
vote for nor who is best. I want to say that I know our people are tired after
so many manipulations, confusion, isolation and being very misunderstood over
one thing and another.
The Serbian people are proud people and strong people, they
are tired of sacrificing their only life in constantly waiting and hoping for a
better future. The moment has come for the Serbian people to finally move ahead,

I appeal to the international community to work together with
our government to positively help solve the Kosovo and Metohija situation in a
fair way, constructive way and not through the unfair imposition of a solution.
I fully support the help we have received form our Russian friends particularly
President Putin whom has my admiration and deepest appreciation. Our people in
Kosovo and Metohija must have guaranteed human rights and the pursuit of life
with full security and jobs. I support the united efforts of our government.
I appeal to the international community not to ransom the
future of the Serbian people.
Our future also depends upon dealing with all the issues of a
modern state. The objective is to be a member of the European Union with
participation in Europe and superlative relations with our Russian friends.
I will gladly give my support to whoever the Serbian people
choose on Sunday in free and fair elections”.
