ABC NEWS/Serbia won’t allow a pan-European LGBTQ Pride event to take place in Belgrade next month, the president said Saturday, citing threats from right-wing extremists and fears of clashes.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic announced the decision to cancel the Sept. 12-18 EuroPride celebration during a news conference where he also proposed extending the term of Serbia’s prime minister, who is a lesbian.

“It’s not the question of whether they (extremists) are stronger, but you just can’t do it all at the same moment, and that’s it,” Vucic said.
