BELGRADE - Serbian Ambassador to Croatia Stanimir Vukicevic has protested to Assistant Minister of Foreign Affairs of Croatia Zeljko Kupresak over a damage that was made to a bilingual sing with the name of the Consulate General of Serbia in Rijeka and smashing of windows on the building during the night between November 8 and 9, the Serbian Foreign Ministry said in a release on Sunday.

Kupresak expressed his regret over the incident and the belief that the attack on Serbia's mission will be shed light on very soon, the release says. The Serbian Foreign Ministry said that they expect Croatia to take all necessary measures to fulfill the commitments it took upon itself in compliance with the Vienna Convention on Consular Relations.
