MP Vladimir Ilic Takes Part in PACE January Session

In the discussion on the position of national minorities in Europe, Vladimir Ilic, member of the National Assembly’s standing delegation and the Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe, drew attention to the breach of human rights of Serbs in Croatia.


Vladimir Ilic pointed out the frequent ethnically motivated attacks on the Serbian minority in Croatia and the destruction of bilingual signs in towns and municipalities where Serbs make up more than a third of the population.
“Despite the fact that the Croatian authorities failed to react adequately to the atmosphere of fear and intolerance, Serbia remains committed to developing good-neighbourly relations and expects Croatia to employ appropriate measures to improve the situation” - concluded Ilic.
In the course of the day, Vladimir Ilic also took part in the plenary debate on energy diversification and sustainable development, highlighting the significance of the Southern Stream and other energy projects important for Serbia and the Balkan countries’ economic difficulties.
