Belgrade is finding the ways to supply the Serbs in the north of Kosovo despite pressures and increased police controls, Head of the Government’s Kosovo and Metohija Office Marko Djuric told Serbian media.
Speaking for the Politika daily, Djuric said it was so important that the Serbs showed solidarity and readiness to fight for their fundamental human rights in a peaceful way. “Without that, our efforts would be in vain,” he added.
Pristina authorities have been trying in recent months, according to Djuric, to “use intimidation and restrictions to break the will of the Serbs in the north of Kosovo and Metohija.”
“The north is Pristina’s obsession, a thorn in their side. But I am convinced they will not manage to enslave and subjugate the Serbs because they have endurance and they also have unquestionable support of Belgrade, the state of Serbia and, if you will, of all Serbs,” underlined Djuric.
Djuric refused to specify how is Belgrade managing to help the Serbs despite the trade blockade, adding that those explanations would only “serve as an excuse for new pressures” and that what actually matters is that bread, milk, meat, flour and oil are available.
