A protest will be organized in Prague on February 17 because of the unilateral declaration of Kosovo’s independence, and on that occasion a petition will be initiated for the Czech withdrawal of recognition of Kosovo, writes Belgrade based daily Vecernje Novosti.
The document, which should be found before the Czech parliament and the government, was first signed by Jan Kavan, former head of diplomacy, deputy prime minister, and chairman of the UN General Assembly.
Joining the initiative was announced, as Vecernje Novosti writes, by prominent politicians from various parties.
“We hope that our petition will be joined by President Milos Zeman,” says Milutin Ilic, Balkan adviser to deputy Jaroslav Foldine, whose consulting company “Geopolitikon” is the organizer of the petition.
Protests over the unilateral proclamation of Kosovo’s independence, he recalls, have been held continuously since 2009, while every March 24, Serbia’s friends are protesting because of the illegal bombing of Serbia.
