After several days of tension in the north of Kosovo, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic held a session of the National Security Council and talked to Patriarch Irinej of the Serbian Orthodox Church.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Saturday that measures would be taken to strengthen the Serbian army and intelligence services after talks with Patriarch Irinej about what Vucic called the “survival of the Serbian people” in Kosovo.

“We will give everything to preserve peace and stability … but we will never again allow another Operation ‘Storm’,” Vucic said, referring to the Croatian army’s 1995 action after which some 200.000 Serbs fled Croatia.

“Today is exactly 1,930 days since we signed the Brussels agreement, and the Albanians’ only obligation – establishing an association of mostly-Serb municipalities – has not been fulfilled,” Vucic told reporters after speaking with the Patriarch.

Patriarch Irinej did not address the media.
