BELGRADE – Director of the Serbian government’s Office for Kosovo-Metohija Marko Djuric said on Thursday that Serbia was shocked at the verdict delivered to leader of the Citizens’ Initiative SDP Oliver Ivanovic, and should seriously consider whether to continue the dialogue with Pristina.

“It is my personal opinion that Pristina and the international community should offer additional assurances to Serbia that the dialogue makes sense. It seems to me that we do not have much to talk about in this atmosphere, as everything boils down to Serbia’s humiliation,” Djuric told reporters.

He noted that he would make his stances known to the prime minister and government officials.

Ivanovic has become a marionette in the hostile play of the puppet judiciary in Kosovo which does not function at all, he said, describing the verdict as political.
