'Enough blood': Milosevic allies take power in Serbia

July 27, 2012 03:45

BELGRADE - Serbia's new leader, a wartime aide of late Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic, told the Balkans on Thursday to forget the past and not fear the return to power of a political alliance that once led the country in war with NATO.

Confining the reformers who ousted Milosevic to the opposition benches for the first time in 12 years, Ivica Dacic said he would speed up Serbia's bid to join the European Union but would not deal anymore with his country's dark past.

Ex-Yugoslav republic Slovenia joined the EU in 2004. Croatia is next in 2013 and Montenegro began talks last month.
