Vucic: Small tactical victory in INTERPOL

BELGRADE - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Tuesday said Pristina's withdrawal of an application for membership in INTERPOL was a victory for Serbia and that Pristina had given up on the membership bid after realising it would receive fewer votes than it had at the organisation's previous General Assembly meeting in Dubai.

"You know I am always quite pessimistic but I said I was expecting a victory. I do not like big words, I do not like us to gloat and rejoice because we have not resolved the strategic problem. However, this is a small tactical victory for us," Vucic told reporters in Belgrade.

"They (Pristina) knew from the very beginning they would not make it, but they thought the trend was more favourable compared to the Dubai vote. But they gave up when they realised the trend was less favourable," he said.
