Prime Minister Ana Brnabic on Friday addressed the public.
Brnabic denied that she gave any dates regarding the parliamentary elections, and added that some media published incorrect information.
"I did not say that at the Government session, information you received from the people who attended the session is not correct," Brnabic stressed.
She added that she believes and hopes that elections will be held in December, and that they are ready for them.
"I think it's better to hold them sooner rather than later, I said that my resignation is on the table and that the opposition, if it wants elections, should start talking about technical details."
The prime minister also stated that some media published incorrect information about the date without checking the accuracy of this information, and that these outlets did that based on "gossip."
Speaking about who determines the duration of her mandate, Brnabic pointed out that the opposition demanded that the (City of) Belgrade and parliamentary elections be called by the end of the year.
"President Vucic did not determine the duration of the Government, we want to meet the opposition half way - those who threatened with civil disobedience, harassment of citizens, blockade of roads, if parliamentary and Belgrade elections are not called by the end of the year."
As for next year's state budget, the prime minister said that it will be adopted before the dissolution of the current composition of the Serbian National Assembly.
"We are a responsible government. The budget is ready, I expect it will be in the Assembly at the beginning of October and we will proceed with the adoption of the budget. The adoption of the budget will enable an additional increase in pensions, an additional increase in wages in the public sector and an increase of the minimum wage, which will be more than 400 euros for the first time in Serbia," Brnabic said in response to a journalist's question of whether the budget of Serbia will be adopted before the dissolution of the Serbian Assembly.
She added that everything that the Government has promised will be fulfilled.
When asked by a journalist if she had information about who were the armed men in Banjska (northern Kosovo and Metohija) and what was the role of Milan Radojicic in that, Brnabic replied that the media outlet that asked her that question was reporting "each word of (Minister of Internal Affairs of Pristina Temporary Institutions Xhelala) Svecla as if it were true".
"Svecla says that someone is being treated at the VMA, and you rush to see if they are really at the VMA. I believe that you all have all the information, ask Pristina," said the prime minister.
She added that the N1 journalist did not tell the truth when she said that the government was silent for three days regarding the events in Banjska, since President Aleksandar Vucic spoke on the same day, last Sunday, at 8 pm.
Prime Minister Ana Brnabic also said today that the terror carried out by Prime Minister of Pristina's Provisional Institutions Albin Kurti continues against the Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, something that both she and President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic have been warning about so far.
When asked about the events in the north of Kosovo, she said that since this morning, the Kosovo police have been conducting searches in the Serb municipalities in the north, that they entered the Clinical-Hospital Center Kosovska Mitrovica, and added that Albin Kurti's terror continues.
"Albin Kurti's terror against the Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija continues, which is completely expected in accordance with everything we have been saying and what President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic has been saying for months, the terrorizing and harassment of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija," said Brnabic.
After the opening of the first industrial biological wastewater treatment plant in Belgrade, at the Smurfit Kappa doo factory, she pointed out that Kurti's only goal and desire is to expel all Serbs from Kosovo and Metohija.
"We are monitoring the situation, we are also talking to KFOR, the international community, and since this morning President Vucic has had meetings on that subject, I also spoke with the director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija, Petar Petkovic, the terror continues," concluded Brnabic.
The prime minister also pointed out that the first industrial biological plant for the processing waste water in Serbia is being put into operation today, and that this is a turning point for our country.
"This is a good day to remind ourselves of the deadline of December 31, 2025, when all business entities in Serbia who produce wastewater from technological processes must build a wastewater treatment plant, and that is the deadline that will be met."
She added that there is still work to be done on collecting waste water by building sewage networks and building a waste water treatment system.
"For those projects, we earmarked as much as 4.5 billion euros, over one billion euros in the city of Belgrade itself."
Earlier in the day, the Kosovo police in armored vehicles positioned themselves in front of the Danica Jaramaz kindergarten in predominatly Serb northern Kosovska Mitrovica.
Armed to the teeth, with their finger on the trigger - the children, as well as the employees in front of the kindergarten, had to witness this blood-curdling scene.
