The director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija, Petar Petkovic, said on Monday that the behavior of the Kosovo police and authorities in Pristina towards the Serb people who came to celebrate Vidovdan in Gracanica and Gazimestan is absolutely inadmissible, and that normalization of relations is built through talks and respect of agreements.

"What was happening during the Vidovdan celebration, the way the Kosovo police reacted by stopping all vehicles with Serbian license plates, searching Serb nuns, taking off t-shirts with the image of Prince Lazar from young men is absolutely unacceptable," Petkovic told reporters.

He said that someone who wants to demonstrate force and show that Serbs do not have the right to celebrate their holiday is obviously doing so out of "certain frustrations" in order to show that this is their territory, reports Tanjug.

"We are simply in our own (land) and we came to celebrate Vidovdan and send messages of peace. Those messages were also sent by President Aleksandar Vucic and Patriarch Porfirije and myself. We just want to live here in Kosovo and Metohija, not to endanger anyone, and celebrate our holidays, because we won't give them up. That is our history, our identity and an issue of our existence," said Petkovic.

He announced that he would inform the international community, primarily in Brussels, and the special envoy for dialogue Miroslav Lajcak, about the events during the Vidovdan celebration.

"If someone thinks that they can normalize relations between Belgrade and Pristina by searching Serb nuns, they are very much mistaken. What is important and what everyone should understand well is that normalization of relations is built by talking and respecting agreements, and not by searching Serb nuns, taking off the T-shirts, prohibiting us from celebrating our holiday," he concluded.
