The Serbian military will not allow any coup attempt and will not be used to topple the government, the country’s defence chiefs said in a statement on Tuesday.
“The Army of Serbia (VS), as keeper of peace and stability, will not allow any attempt at a coup d’etat and is warning anyone announcing or calling for one that they could be held accountable under the law,” said the statement released after a meeting of the Board of the Defence Minister and Chief of General Staff.
It added that the VS is equipped and ready to fulfil every order from the Serbian president and preserve the peace and stability of the country and its people.
“The VS is telling everyone, at home and abroad, that it is not and will not be tool to topple the legal and legitimate authorities in Serbia nor the violent toppling of constitutional order,” the statement said.
The statement said that the VS is carefully monitoring the security situation in Kosovo following the introduction of 100 percent tariffs on Serbian goods and the forming of a Kosovo military and warned KFOR and the international community that they are responsible for the peace and security of everyone in Kosovo.
