 The renowned Swiss historian David Laufer, who knows well the Serbian history well in an interview for Belgrade's weekly newspaper Nedeljnik, said that the Serbs are people who breed conflicts and that they do not belong to a geographic territory.

Today, this story is coming to an end, Before we find out how it happened, we summarize everything we've talked about here. The notion that Serbs have for themselves is mostly demographic, but not geographic, he stresset to the weekly Nedeljnik, the historian David Laufer.

"It's a nation, not a territory. And this nation is largely determined by the criteria of religion, the concept of resistance inherited directly from the Ottoman Empire. This is, therefore, a nation that is linked to the common belief, which for centuries has led often self-destructive conflicts in order to preserve their own myths, but not so much its borders or its economic interests ."

"So Serbia is captured by its myths."

"For a Swiss, such a concept and this story seems, at first glance, exotic, and worst, absurd."
