Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Prime Minister Ana Brnabic took part in an official commemoration for the 19th anniversary of the NATO intervention into Yugoslavia in Belgrade, Saturday. Vucic spoke about the relationship with NATO, saying that Serbia wanted to have a partnership with the alliance despite the intervention. «We want from the enemy to become friends, just do not make us... Еще forget that you killed us or blame our country for it,» added Vucic. He claimed that Serbia would not join NATO, saying that «it would be too salty for our wounds.» The NATO bombing of Yugoslavia was a military operation against the Serbian people and the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) during the Kosovo War. It was the first time that the organisation used military force without the approval of the UN Security Council. The air strikes lasted from March 24 to June 10, 1999.
