Stefanovic: We will not allow any kind of pogrom against Serbs in Kosovo

The situation in Kosovo is becoming increasingly complicated. Above all, we want to preserve the security of the Serb population and analyze all the challenges they face, the National Security Council in Belgrade assessed. „We will not allow any kind of pogrom, expulsion, and crimes against the Serb population,“ Serbian Defense Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said.

The Minister of Defense said that the situation in Kosovo was the first topic to be discussed during today’s session. The session was headed by the Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic. It was held a day after the content of the letter of congratulations of the US President Joe Biden was revealed to the public. In the letter, in addition to congratulating Vucic on the occasion of Serbia Statehood Day, Biden also encouraged Serbia to recognize Kosovo.

Stefanovic revealed that they discussed a very complex situation in a political-security sense and about what the Serb state authorities are doing to „preserve stability and security in the territory of the southern province.“

„Above all, we want to preserve the security of the Serb population and analyze all the challenges they face. The situation in Kosovo is becoming increasingly complicated,“ said Stefanovic.

In his words, there are „new situations“ – such as „the letter of congratulations on Statehood Day“, which some Kosovo politicians are „looking forward to.“ He added that Serbia also wants to continue to protect the stability and security of the Serb population in Kosovo in cooperation with KFOR.

„We will not allow any kind of pogrom, expulsion, and crimes against the Serb population,“ the Defense Minister emphasized.

The US president, Joseph Biden sent a letter to Vucic on the occasion of Statehood Day of Serbia. In the letter, Biden wrote: „We remain steadfast in our support for Serbia’s goal of European integration and encourage you to continue taking the hard steps forward to reach that aim – including instituting necessary reforms and reaching a comprehensive normalization agreement with Kosovo centered on mutual recognition.”
