Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic stated that the Belgrade government is considering the recall of its Warsaw Ambassador, Nikola Zurovac, who signed a letter of support to the Polish LGBT community without consulting the ministry or government. Selakovic said he was supposed to be in Poland now, but that Polish officials had now cancelled his planned meetings in Warsaw. “Then we learned that the reason was the actions of our ambassador, who signed the petition … and it is considered that the [Serbian] state is behind what ambassador did. He did not consult with anyone and a ministerial visit was expected,” Selakovic told the media outlet Kurir. Selakovic stated that the petition “was not signed by all EU members” and added that his visit to Warsaw was not canceled but postponed. “My move is for the ambassador to be invited for consultations, and the government to decide on his dismissal. In diplomacy, every word is binding. The visit to Poland will be organised again soon,” Selakovic stressed.
