Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said today that "no one has the right to teach Serbia what kind of foreign policy it will lead", responding to the statement of Croatian Foreign Minister Gordan Grlic Radman, for which Belgrade sent a note of protest to the Croatian Embassy yesterday.

Dacic assessed that even after the note "Croatia continues to advise Serbia to stick to the right side of history" and asked how someone can interfere in the foreign policy of a country and how a principle of international law can be valid when it comes to Russia and Ukraine, and another principle when it comes to Kosovo.

He said that in Croatia "a relationship of hatred towards Serbia and the Serbian people is being systematically built".

- It is about a permanent campaign. They are interested in everything that can cause political instability, said Dacic on TV Pink.

The head of Serbian diplomacy assessed that it is necessary to be "practical" and that in the relations between the two countries, it is necessary to determine what are the problems of the past, as well as to define which problems remain unresolved and to be solved.

Yesterday, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Serbia sent a note of protest to the Croatian Embassy in Belgrade due to the unacceptable statements of the Croatian Minister of Foreign Affairs Gordan Grlic Radman that "Vucic can be a Trabant and a satellite of Russia, but the influence of the Russians or other maligns will not be allowed influences that would disturb the stability of the Western Balkans"

The head of Croatian diplomacy also said that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic must decide which chair he will sit on, alluding to his attempts to maintain good relations with both Russia and the European Union.

Dacic strongly condemned Grlic Radman's statement yesterday and said that no one has the right, least of all Croatia, to teach lessons and brutally interfere in Serbia's internal affairs.
