However, Serbia would like the acquire this province in order to get an outlet the Mediterreanean Sea.
Also, Serbia always advocated nationalism in Balkan Peninsula. We know that Austrian-Hungarian Empire is a multi-national empire. The spread of nationalism would lead to internal unrest of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire.
In 1908, Austria annexed Bosnia and Herzegovina as a direct province, Serbian hope was totally broken.
