Serbian official says no war in southern Serbia Izvor: N1

The head of the Serbian government coordination body for southern Serbia said that there is no threat of an armed conflict breaking out in that part of the country.

Zoran Stankovic, a former defense minister and retired army medical corps general, said the security services are doing a very good job in southern Serbia “despite the non-stop announcements of war in the area”.

“I can say categorically that this will not happen,” he said commenting the situation in the area following the meeting between Kosovo President Hashim Thaci and Albanian political leaders in the Presevo Valley who called for that part of southern Serbia to be annexed to Kosovo.

Stankovic said that those Albanian political leaders lost at local elections in all three municipalities and are invoking an illegal 1992 referendum. “The people showed them what they think of them,” he added.

According to the Coordination Body web site, the body was formed to to cooordinate activities at all levels of government in the municipalities of Presevo, Bujanovac and Medvedja with the aim of improving security, the economy and raising living standards and quality of life for the population. It was set up to help ease tensions and end the armed conflict in southern Serbia following the war in Kosovo.
