BELGRADE, September 25 /ITAR-TASS/. A gay parade which is due to take place in the Serbian capital Belgrade on September 28 has sparked a controversy in the Serbian society. Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic told journalists on Thursday that it had never occurred to him to be present at the event. He, however, is convinced that the parade is not Serbia’s main problem.
“It is necessary to respect the law, and anybody who is going to provoke incidents is going to be punished severely. My duty is to guarantee security to all,” Vucic stressed.
The final decision on whether the gay parade is going to take place will be passed on Friday, with security considerations being the main criteria. The Serbian Interior Ministry will have the right to cancel the parade at the last minute, Vucic said.
The Serbian Orthodox Church has come resolutely against the parade. Asked to comment on the church’s stance, Vucic replied that he respected it. “However, it is the government that should pursue the state policy in strict compliance with the constitution,” the prime minister said.
