Council for National Security meets after Pristina platform
The meeting is attended by Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, security agency BIA chief Bratislav Gasic, First Deputy PM and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic, Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic, Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin, Army chief Lieutenant General Milan Mojsilovic, Director of the Police Vladimir Rebic, and other officials.
The president of an association gathering families of those killed or kidnapped in Kosovo and Metohija, Simo Spasic, placed a banner this morning near the Presidency, where the meeting is being held, urging the Serbian authorities to abandon the dialogue "with KLA ('Kosovo Liberation Army') leaders."
The Kosovo Assembly previously adopted its platform for negotiations with Belgrade, with Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj's message that "the borders of Kosovo are untouchable" - meaning, "preserving Kosovo as it was on February 17, 2008 (the date of unilateral declaration of independence made by ethnic Albanians, that Serbia rejects as a violation of its territorial integrity - ed.)".
For Belgrade, this document, from the moment when its first version surfaced, was a sign that Pristina does not actually want a compromise, nor dialogue, or any kind of agreement - except simply Serbia's recognition, and within the borders that it has set for itself, within the territory of Serbia.
Vucic recently spoke at the Munich Security Forum to say that what the Kosovo Albanians delivered to the Assembly as a platform for continuing the dialogue with Belgrade was in fact a platform against dialogue.
The previous session of the Serbian Council for National Security was held at the end of November last year, when Pristina increased by 100 percent taxes on goods from central Serbia.
