Vucic to Kosovo Serbs: Wait with leaving institutions until I meet world leaders Izvor: Tanjug / Dimitrije Goll

Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic said on Wednesday the representatives of Kosovo Serbs asked him to talk to the Government about their decision to leave all Pristina institutions, but he told them to wait some 45 days until he meets the Chinese President and other world leaders, the Belgrade-based news agencies reported.

At a news conference following his meeting with the Kosovo Serbs, “ from the north and south,” in Belgrade, Vucic said they were in a tough situation, especially after Pristina introduced the 100 percent import tariffs on goods from Serbia and Bosnia last November.

The other reason which made their position even worse wasPristina’s new statute of the Trepca mining complex, which could result in 2,400 jobs loses for the Serbs in the north.

The word on the unification of the northern (with a Serb majority) and southern (with an Albanian majority) Mitrovica (the town divided by the Ibar River) is a direct threat to our nation. And people say that can only happen with violence,” Vucic said.

“I told them not to seek my answer today, and in the next month and a half, before I meet with the President of China (Xi Jinping) and talk to other important leaders since if Pristina continues with such defensive attitude, we will be in a hopeless situation,” Vucic said.
