27 November, 09:18

(ANSA) - BELGRADE - The EU Parliament has come up with a draft resolution condemning hostile statements made by the Serbian ultranationalist leader Vojislav Seselj, and inviting at the same time the authorities in Belgrade to dissociate themselves from these words.

This draft resolution, drawn up on the initiative of Croat MEPs, will be voted upon at the EU Parliament on November 27. The document strongly condemns ''the words of hatred spoken by Vojislav Seselj and the insults sent to the victims of the wars in the former Yugoslavia, including some shameful statements made in conjunction with the Day of Commemoration in Memory of the Victims fallen in Vukovar''. Seselj is on trial for war crimes at the Hague Tribunal (ICTY) and has been temporarily released for health reasons. (ANSA).
