The Serbian government’s Office for Kosovo and Metohija chief Marko Djuric on Thursday called KFOR and the international community to react to the possible storage of hazardous chemical waste in the Serb village of Gorazdevac.
A statement said that plans have been made to transport and destroy 80 barrels of hazardous chemical waste in that Serb village in the Metohija region near the town of Pec.
“This is the latest in a series of activities by the temporary institutions in Pristina, this time by failing to react, which endangers the physical survival of the Serbs in Kosovo and which shows that the political representatives of the Kosovo Albanians do not care about building trust and life together in Kosovo,” the statement said.
It said that some 20 barrels of hazardous chemicals had been transported to what was once a leather and footwear production plant which was privatized by an Albanian since May 24.
Gorazdevac villagers staged several peaceful protests demanding the removal of the hazardous materials from the village.
