If it does not happen, Serbia will defend its interests, Home stated on Thursday.

He told a news conference after a government session that the stand of the Serbian government, which was highlighted on several occasions, is that it would be best to withdraw the lawsuits, but that it is aware that this takes political will on both sides.

Serbia will persevere because it is the best solution, and specific actions will be decided by its team entrusted with this issue, Homen said.

He added that if Croatia does not agree to the withdrawal, Serbia will defend its interests.
