KOSOVSKA MITROVICA – Minister for Communities and Return in the Kosovo government Dalibor Jevtic stated Friday that only one Serb family has returned to Kosovo since the Prime Minister Isa Mustafa’s government was set up.


The only return officially recorded in the past five months is the comeback of one Serb family to the village of Crkolez in Istok Municipality, Jevtic told Kosovska Mitrovica-based Radio Kontakt plus.

Jevtic, who was appointed Minister for Communities and Return after leader of the Serb List Aleksandar Jablanovic was dismissed, said that he initiated a proposal for the establishment of an inter-ministerial group of the Kosovo government for the return of displaced persons so that other ministries and institutions would deal with the issue as well.

He pointed to the important role the Serbian government has in the process of return of displaced persons to Kosovo-Metohija (KiM).

“Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic and Director of KiM Office Marko Djuric are in regular contact with representatives of Serbs in Kosovo, which is very important,” Jevtic said.
