Representatives of Serbs in the north of Kosovo stated that the construction of 300 new houses will commence despite the opposition from authorities in Pristina. Head of the Zveçan/Zvečan provisional authority appointed by Belgrade, Ivan Todosijević, said that it is up to Pristina to demonstrate good will by granting construction permit for the houses. He said the foundation has already been laid and construction is expected to begin shortly. Furthermore, Todosijević accused the government in Pristina for failing to help the return of the Serb community to Kosovo. At the same time, Kosovo authorities oppose the plan for construction of 300 new houses saying it is illegal and hamper interethnic relations. Minister of Environment and Spatial Planning, Ferid Agani, said Serbia’s investments in the north without prior agreement represent interference in internal affairs of Kosovo. He argued that funding of such a large-scale project would have to go through Kosovo’s central institutions.
