|STRASBOURG -- Deputy PM Božidar Đelić told Council of Europe Secretary General Thorbjorn Jagland in Strasbourg that Serbia did not want to politicize Dick Marty's report.|
Serbia's goal was to ensure justice for the innocent victims.
"We want the truth to be known; for those who were the culprits to be punished. Because of this, we expect an international, unbiased investigation to be launched that will bring the culprits of these extremely serious crimes to justice and lead to their punishment," Đelić told Beta news agency.
Đelić stressed that Serbia's delegation "spent the greater half of today struggling so that a number of amendments proposed by the Greens in the European Parliament do not win a majority tomorrow."
"We tried to stop the EP from taking the stance that the upcoming dialog between Belgrade and Priština excludes the status question," Đelić said.
He said that despite the debate having been the favorable for Serbia in the last 10 years, voices of criticism were heard in the European Parliament especially with regard to Belgrade's cooperation with the ICTY.
