BELGRADE - Srpska lista leader Goran Rakic said on Monday representatives of Kosovo-Metohija Serbs had informed Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic of the situation on the ground and the problems facing Serbs in the province.
They asked Vucic to use his authority to ensure the soonest possible release of two arrested Serb protesters, Rados Petrovic and Dusan Obrenovic.
They gathered in peaceful protest to express their dissatisfaction with the violent actions of Pristina in the north, the arrival of Kosovo special forces and the imposition of illegal Albanian mayors elected in elections in which the turnout was only about 3.5 percent and which the Serbs boycotted.
More generally, there is a sense that Pristina has failed to uphold its end of the bargain by refusing to establish the Association/Community of Serb-majority Municipalities, A/CSM, one of the key elements of the now decade-old Brussels Agreement. For Kosovo Serbs, the A/CSM is a vital mechanism through which their community rights can be advanced.
It has been 13 days since the raid of special police units on the premises of the municipalities of Zvean, Zubin Potok and Leposavi, and today is the tenth day of protest by the residents of Zvean who want the special units to withdraw from the north of Kosovo and for the workers of the municipality to be allowed to return to their workplaces.
BELGRADE - Serbian Parliament Speaker Vladimir Orlic received the head of the Polish parliamentary committee on foreign affairs Radoslaw Fogiel on Tuesday.
Orlic noted that Serbia was committed to deepen its cooperation with Poland in the economy, infrastructure and other areas but that preserving peace and stability was the main precondition for that.
To this day, that wire separated members of KFOR and Serbs who have been gathering at the municipal building for days, demanding that members of the so-called police leave the municipal buildings in the north of Kosovo, which they forcibly entered, introducing the Albanian mayors.
