Pristina taxes divert attention from essential Kosovo issues
And these include shedding light on the fate of the Serbs killed and disappeared in Kosovo and Metohija, the first deputy PM and Foreign Minister said on February 17, according to the government.
Speaking at a gathering organized by the Association of Families of those Kidnapped and Killed in Kosovo and Metohija, Dacic said that the imposition of tariffs also diverted attention from the issues of the rights of Serbs, property of Serbia in the southern Serbian province, the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities (ZSO) and many others.
The First Deputy Prime Minister pointed out that the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo, which is being celebrated in Pristina today, is made up of lies and crimes.
Yesterday you could hear Hashim Thaci say that independent Kosovo was recognized by 116 countries, and that they imposed tariffs because 13 countries withdrew recognition. But 74 United Nations members voted for Kosovo to enter Interpol. Then how did they get the number of 116?, Dacic asked.
The First Deputy Prime Minister recalled that allegations were coming from Pristina that Serbs captured Albanians at a stadium, but that no journalist who tried to record it saw it, and that Serbs took blood from Albanian children for their soldiers and other lies.
Dacic pointed out that what it true is that 200,000 Serbs were expelled from Kosovo and Metohija.
He asked what is it that Pristina is celebrating when, in 11 years since its unilateral declaration of independence, it has not become a member of the Council of Europe, UN, UNESCO, Interpol, and other international organizations, while at the same time recalling that the EU signed a treaty with Kosovo as a territory, not as a state.
