Serbian officials: Priština’s moves jeopardize agreements

Thursday 18.08.2011.

BELGRADE — Serbian Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanović says Priština is jeopardizing all the agreements reached so far by not letting Serbian buses enter Kosovo.

 Bogdanović told Tanjug that the returning of buses from the administrative crossings represented “a drastic violation of all the agreements which the two sides had previously reached in Brussels, particularly those relating to freedom of movement.”

“It is a highly detrimental move of Priština, which jeopardizes all the agreements we had previously reached,” Belgrade negotiating team head Borislav Stefanović told Tanjug.

The minister for Kosovo stressed that the fact that “the EU and the UN keep silent about the recent moves of the interim government in Priština gives Serbia cause for concern,” and recalled that the government contacted these institutions, but has not yet received an answer.

“If Serbia had done such a thing, there would have been responses to it – from the U.S. and the EU and international organizations,” Bogdanović said, adding that the Albanian side had support of the international community for this decision, as well as for the recent attempt at assuming control over border crossings.

The Belgrade team chief also qualified as “detrimental” the last move of Priština’s authorities.

The Serbian government has requested from the UN and the EU to prevent the interim Priština government’s attempts to obstruct freedom of movement in the territory of the southern Serbian province.
