Serbian minister says arrests part of pressure on Serbs Izvor: Tanjug/Dimitrije Goll

The recent arrests of Serbs in Kosovo are part of the pressure on the local Serbs, Serbian Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic told Belgrade’s TV Prva on Thursday.

According to the minister, the Serbs are being pressured into accepting the forming of a Kosovo military and into considering whether there is room for them in Kosovo. “The Serbs living in Kosovo do not want an army to be formed nor anything else not allowed by international regulations and UN resolutions,” he said.  

“It’s clear now who is trying to block the Belgrade-Pristina negotiations,” Stefanovic said, adding that Belgrade is doing everything to normalize life in Kosovo while Pristina is trying to block the talks and not implement key points of the Brussels agreement.

The presidents of Serbia and Kosovo are due to meet in Brussels on July 18 at the invitation of the European Union HIgh Representative.
