Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Monday that maintaining peace and stability are the goals of his coming meeting with Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti later this week.
He told reporters that Belgrade is not making threats against anyone but just wants to make sure international law is observed, including UN Security Council resolution 1244 and the Brussels Agreement.
“We want to talk about the Community of Serb Municipalities,” he said and added that it’s meaningless for anyone to say that it has to be in line with the Kosovo Constitution. If it is in line with it Belgrade does not need the Community of Serb Municipalities, he said. According to him, much greater powers were negotiated for the Community. “They are not interested in the Serbian Constitution so why should we be interested in what they think. It’s clear what we negotiated and we are going ahead in that direction,” Vucic said.
He said that “everything can be done through violence, you just never know how far”.
The Serbian President refused to comment the European External Action Service (EEAS) statement expressing concern over the rise in inflammatory rhetorics from officials in Belgrade and Pristina. “I have no comment, it’s best that way,” he said.
