Patriarch Porfirije said that Serbian people would strongly raise their voices against historian revisionism.

“We gathered to pray before your trip to New York. Today we loudly raise our voice against historical revisionism and the Serbian people to be declared as genocide perpetrators. We are in a state of tribulation preceding the biggest world forum, and we pray that the Lord gives you strength to represent our people in the best possible way.

Under its auspices, all freedom-loving countries, all nations fighting for dignity and justice, which has been meaningless and humiliated for a long time, will find new energy in advocating for a fairer world. Long live Serbia!" - said Vučić.
