“We should not wage wars and we must not forget the wars we waged,” the president stressed.

Nikolić added that the authorities were trying to secure a peaceful life to their citizens.

He noted that it was never good to leave unresolved issues to next generations.

Commenting on the First Balkan War, the president said that Serbia had managed to liberate Kosovo in the war and pointed out that one should always bear in mind consequences of the war.
