Speaking at Belgrade's Klub Poslanika venue, the prime minister added that this decision will be made "after the meeting of the (UN) Security Council."

Vucic then noted that Serbia has not yet received the invitation for this session.

The prime minister stated that he on Friday "received a message inviting him to informal consultations on the resolution by those who participated in its writing" - but did not say who sent this invitation.

"It's no problem if I should hang my head low, but it would be a problem to humiliate Serbia, that I will not participate in. For someone to humiliate us in this way, to receive five drafts, and then be told, ' you come on now, after we reached agreement with some others,' that makes no sense," he said.

Vucic noted that "nobody asked Serbia whether such a resolution is needed," and stressed that Bosnia-Herzegovina is participating in the consultations on the document.

Vucic reiterated that his decision on attending the July 11 commemoration in Srebrenica will be made in the coming days, "in line, among other things, with what will be happening with the resolution on Srebrenica."

"In any case, half of Serbia will criticize, the other half which will be pleased will keep silent, waiting for another opportunity to criticize," the prime minister said.

According to him, the decision will be made "in accordance with the interests of Serbia and stability of the region."
