Senior presidential, government and municipal officials, as well as representatives of war veterans, laid flowers on Friday in front of the monument dubbed 'Mother's Broken Wing' in central Skopje in memory of the 54 young Macedonians who lost their lives amid the collapse of the federal Yugoslav state.
President Vucic was invited to the EPP Congress as the leader of the Serbian Progressive Party (SNS).
According to Blic, Vucic sent a letter to EPP President, Joseph Daul, containing rationale for his decision.
Here's integral version of the letter:
"Dear President Daul, my dear friend,
The Croatian Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs sent a diplomatic note on Friday to the Serbian embassy in Zagreb, expressing its "strongest protest over the unveiling of a memorial plaque to Mladen Bratic, commander of the former Yugoslav People's Army forces and associated Serbian paramilitary units in the attack on Vukovar".
A US envoy for the Western Balkans on Monday described European Union's decision not to open membership talks with North Macedonia and Albania as a "historic mistake" that sends a bad message to the region.
Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Matthew Palmer said the US will do all it can to persuade the EU to reverse the decision before a planned leaders' meeting in May in Croatia.
Montenegro on Wednesday extradited Sasa Sindjelic, a former protected witness in the Montenegro "Coup Plot" trial, to Croatia, where he is to serve a jail sentence over an unrelated case.
It previously arrested Sindjelic, a Serbian national, on the basis of an Interpol "red notice" submitted by Croatia.
Several dozen people joined the protest entitled 'Rally for Her Justice', organised by the Albanian American Woman's Organisation with backing from US Bosnian and Croat groups, on Tuesday near the Serbian consulate in New York.
The organisers said they were calling on the Serbian authorities "to punish and prosecute the war criminals that may still be living in their country".
"Some time in June this year, I gave an exhaustive video interview to journalist Nenad Radicevic. From that interview, he included merely one half of one sentence in the text, and with his very one-sided writing he misled the readers to believe that I was somehow affiliated with the neo-Nazis from Germany and neo-Ustasha from Croatia.
