Croatian minister of Interior comments on Serbia's plans to buy weapons

Serbia's announced buying of Russian weapons has attracted attention in Croatia, while Interior Minister Rajko Ostojic has been asked to comment on the news.

He told the RTL television that his country is a NATO member, "and nobody will dare attack it."
