Djuric: "I am fed up with lies coming from Pristina, Vucic has a tough job ahead of him"
He stressed that no one ever had any illusions that these conversations would solve things easily
The director of the Office of the Government of Serbia for Kosovo and Metohija, Marko Djuric, said last night that technical talks will be continued before the next meeting in which President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic will participate with the representatives of Pristina, and that Vucic has a very difficult job ahead.
"There is no doubt that President Vucic, who has always truly protected state interests as intensively as possible and by investing himself in that, will have a difficult task and a difficult job. I saw that today as well," said Djuric, when asked by journalists about the results of the meeting and whether they will be continued at a higher level, and added that the approach of the other side was not constructive.
He said that he did not want to say harsh words so as not to aggravate an otherwise otherwise difficult situation, which is why he was restrained, but added also that he is fed up with the lies coming from Pristina.
"The lies that during our rounds (of Belgrade-Pristina dialogue) and meetings the topic is recognition of Kosovo, and how there are no usurped houses and apartments in Kosovo and Metohija, and there are no problems because of which our people (Serbs) are not returning to Kosovo and Metohija. We need a constructive atmosphere and approach, and not political speeches that don't lead towards a concrete solution," stated Djuric.
He stressed, however, that no one ever had any illusions that these conversations would solve things easily.
As he said, it is better to sometimes get exhausted by talking and really solve problems than to come out with some papers that sound nice, like in the past, and never solve anything.
Djuric's message was that the policy of Serbia and President Vucic, the government and the state delegation of Serbia will be to solve problems and fight for the interests of Serbia by solving everyday problems of our people in Kosovo and Metohija and by establishing real economic cooperation, not by creating new barriers.
There will be a lot of work until we arrive to a more tangible shift, Djuric added.
