The opposition Alliance for Serbia (SzS) formed its branch in Kosovo on Monday at a gatheringata a monument outside Pristina.
Alliance official and Freedom and Justice Party leader Dragan Djilas told reporters that the Kosovo branch included SzS members and other parties and associations active in Kosovo.
He told the ceremony that the dialogue between Serbs and Albanians is crucial but warned that it will be hard to achieve if the two sides don’t talk at all.
Djilas said the meeting was moved from the centre of Gracanica to the nearby Gazimestan monument (to the medieval Serb warriors who died battling invading Ottoman forces) because the organizers wanted to avoid any conflict with a group of people protesting their presence.
Asked about the call for the opposition to end its boycott of parliament and take part in a session on Kosovo, Djilas said that he is sure that no opposition MP fighting the regime will attend it.
