The recent arrests of Serbs in Kosovo are part of the pressure on the local Serbs, Serbian Internal Affairs Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic told Belgrade based TV Prva on Thursday, reports Serbian media.
According to the minister, the Serbs are being pressured into accepting the forming of a Kosovo military and into considering whether there is room for them in Kosovo.
‘’The Serbs living in Kosovo do not want an army to be formed nor anything else not allowed by international regulations and UN resolutions,” he said.
“It’s clear now who is trying to block the Belgrade-Pristina negotiations,” Stefanovic said, adding that Belgrade is doing everything to normalize life in Kosovo while Pristina is trying to block the talks and not implement key points of the Brussels agreement.
Stefanovic stressed that there were no reactions from the international community on the attacks and arrest of Serbs in Kosovo and that they mainly call on both sides to the normalization.
“I do not know what the Serb people or our negotiating position has done badly to call us, instead of sharp condemnation the arrest of Serbs and causing of fear among people,” the minister said.
