Serbia’s Prime Minister Ana Brnabic told N1 on Friday that she has nothing more to say about the incident that led a Croatian parliamentary delegation to cut short its visit to Belgrade earlier this week.

Brnabic said that she had “no additional comments” on the demands by the Croatian government for Serbia to take a firm stand against ultra-nationalist politician Vojislav Seselj, and called the entire situation “increasingly bizarre”. 

Croatian Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said earlier that he expects Serbia to sharply and clearly condemn the incident which Seselj and his Serbian Radical Party (SRS) said they caused on Wednesday.  

The SRS had issued a statement during the Croatian delegation’s visit claiming that its leader tore down and trampled on a Croatian flag and used offensive language to address members of the delegation. However, none of the reporters and media crews present in parliament at the time witnessed the alleged incident.
