Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic stated that the current situation in Kosovo, especially in northern Kosovo, worries him.
European Union (European Union) Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak Vucic made a statement at the press conference held after the meeting.
Recalling that he shares Lajcak’s concern, Vucic said, “(Kosovo Prime Minister) Albin Kurti wants to start the conflict, he is doing his best to become the national hero of Albanians.” He said.
He could not find a word to say about the Kosovo side’s moves, Vucic said, “Those who once found 50 percent turnout insufficient for a legal election today find 3 percent sufficient.” He said.
Stressing that he will not attend the Council of Europe summit to be held in Iceland, Vucic said: “Some countries are opposed to protecting the territorial integrity of countries that are not in their interest, while protecting the territorial integrity of countries in their interest. After consultations with Prime Minister Ana Brnabić and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, I decided that “Serbia will be represented at the summit at the lowest level. I will not attend the summit, Serbia will not support their decision, and will abstain from voting. We cannot prevent the adoption of the resolution, but at least they must say that it was not taken unanimously.” He rated it.
Emphasizing his willingness to bear any consequences of his decision, Vucic said that Kurti opposes the creation of the Union of Serbian Municipalities (ZSO) in Kosovo and is preparing to enter Zvecan, where there is a large Serb population, along with the mayor who “claims to have won the elections”.
The Serb leader saw that Lajcak was aware of the situation, and said: “He is concerned about the situation. He has realized the kind of terror that Serbs are facing in Kosovo.” He said.
Vucic reiterated that the international community’s silence in the face of Pristina’s moves was alarming, and said that they could not intimidate Serbia in this way.
Vucic stated that after the armed attacks in Serbia on May 3 and 5, more than 9,000 illegal weapons were handed over to the authorities, and announced that no legal proceedings would be initiated against citizens who voluntarily surrendered their weapons.
