Serbian Church appeals for peace in Montenegro Izvor: N1

The Serbian Orthodox Church Montenegro Littoral Bishopric appealed for peace in Montenegro and blamed the recent violence on the state authorities.

“We can only talk and build a future for ourselves the state of Montenegro in peace. We are concerned by the hatred coming from individuals but recognize in it the irresponsible behavior of the people who should be the most responsible in Montenegro,” a statement said.  

It said that statements from top state officials made it “clear that conflicts and hatred are the final weapon in their fight against the people” and condemned all violence. “We pray to God that blood revenge does not happen again … and that the hatred and killings of brethren which was started in World War 3 does not reappear,” it added.  

Earlier in the day, Montenegrin Prime Minister Dusko Markovic called Montenegro Littoral Bishop Amfilohije to discuss the law on freedom of confession. “It is time to devote ourselves to harmony and the building of trust, especially within the Orthodox Christian confession as the largest. The government sees that opportunity and will be strongly devoted to it,” a post on the government’s Twitter account said adding that it is prepared to discuss the law and remove any dilemmas about the future use of churches and monasteries.
