Kosovo and Metohija Office chief: Form ZSO immediately, both Pristina and EU are tested
In a conversation with Lajcak, Petkovic said that now not only Pristina's will to solve problems through dialogue is being tested, but also the ability of the EU as a mediator in the dialogue to guarantee implementation of what has been agreed
The Community of Serb Municipalities (ZSO) must be formed immediately and with the powers that belong to it according to the Brussels agreements, the director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija, Petar Petkovic, told the EU special representative for dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, Miroslav Lajcak.
In a conversation with Lajcak, Petkovic said that now not only Pristina's will to solve problems through dialogue is being tested, but also the ability of the EU as a mediator in the dialogue to guarantee implementation of what has been agreed.
As a statement from the Office for Kosovo and Metohija points out, Petkovic spoke with Lajcak about the continuation of the dialogue, goals and ways to solve the problem of Pristina's refusal to enable the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities.
According to him, the ZSO has only one goal - to protect the position and rights of the Serb people in Kosovo and Metohija.
"In recent weeks, we have witnessed that neither the rights nor the security of Serbs can be protected in the current political and legal framework in our southern province," said Petkovic.
Petkovic pointed out that Belgrade, in the interest of the entire region, wants to continue the dialogue and resolve open issues by peaceful means, but Pristina must also be required to be constructive and credible, because this is a process that must be based on mutual readiness and good faith.
