BELGRADE – A unilateral redrawing of Belgrade-Pristina agreements is completely unacceptable to Serbia, the head of the Serbian government Office for Kosovo-Metohija Marko Djuric has said, commenting on a statement by EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini on the Community of Serb Municipalities.

“No one is going to redraw what we agreed on August 25, (2015)” Djuric told Pink TV late Thursday after Mogherini said in Pristina that the Community of Serb Municipalities will not be a parallel governing authority and that it does not put Kosovo’s “territorial integrity” into question.

“We very much respect your role but we will not accept you or anyone else redrawing what has been agreed unambiguously in Brussels,” Djuric said, adding that his statement is a message to the international community and Mogherini, who acts as a facilitator in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue.

That particularly applies to the agreements of August 25, 2015 under which the Statute of the Community is to be formulated in four months’ time, he said.

“Serbia is not giving up on the Community of Serb Municipalities being formed in the manner agreed,” Djuric said.

Belgrade does not care what decision the constitutional court in Pristina made when it reassessed the decision to establish the Community, he also said.

  1. Better not, there are Serbs in these places struggling against barriers that would be damned in any other country and sanctioned only by those you deem to join and get into bed with (USA/EU). No these Serbs need all the help, support and legal assistance they can. No these Serbs have ended up in a situation they did not ask for and bravely uphold Serbian culture, way of life, language and they are SERBIA !
