Latest News from Serbia
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic condemned the Kosovo government's latest decision about licence plates for Serbs living in northern Kosovo, claiming its goal is "to expel Serbs, especially from the north of Kosovo and Metohija". He said Kosovo's goal was "to make a new Storm", referencing the Croatian army operation in 1995, codenamed Storm, that forced most Serbs to flee Croatia.
Those requests were brought to Belgrade by the EU special envoy Miroslav Lajcak, with whom Vucic met tonight in the building of the General Secretariat of the President of the Republic.
President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vui, said that as of today, we have a complete change in the situation in our country, as well as in the territory of Kosovo and Metohija.
Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic said that her Montenegrin counterpart, Dritan Abazovic, had "again drawn her attention" to the issue of the former President of the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro from 2003 to 2006 who is avoiding justice in Montenegro and hiding in Serbia, but gave no details.
The meeting started at 12:30 p.m.
By the way, the Montenegrin Prime Minister arrived in Belgrade this morning, where he was given a formal welcome in front of the Palace of Serbia. Before the meeting with Vui, he talked with the Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabic.
Kosovo police said they arrested Serbian citizen Nikola Nedeljkovic from Belgrade for "inciting hatred and discord" after a memorial service on Tuesday dedicated to the fighters of 1389 Battle of Kosovo.
The service was held at the Gazimestan monument near Kosovo's capital, Pristina. It coincides with the Serbian Orthodox religious holiday of Vidovdan (St. Vitus Day).
