Patriarch Irinej: Today, when final wish of His Majesty King Peter I has been fulfilled, that his descendents live in their country with their people, and to be buried at St. George Church in Oplenac, we truly believe that souls of Karadjordje, Prince Alexander, King Peter I and King Alexander I rejoyce today. Crown Prince Alexander II: This is not only a historic moment for Royal Family, but also for the whole Serbian nation and the State of Serbia. Prime Minister Ivica Dacic: There are many ideologies, but there is just one Serbia. President Tomislav Nikolic: We cannot have luxury of divisions and injustice any more.
