Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovich stated that the authorities of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo are planning to arrange a uniform hell for the Serbs living in this territory.
We are talking about the plans of the leadership of the republic to cancel car numbers and documents issued in Serbia.
According to the demand of local authorities, from August 1, documents received in Serbia will be considered invalid, and drivers will be issued temporary certificates when entering and leaving Kosovo. Also, mandatory re-registration of vehicles will begin on the territory of the self-proclaimed republic.
According to an agreement reached last year, at checkpoints on the Kosovo side, drivers are sticking stickers with the Serbian coat of arms and the letters “KM” meaning “Kosovo and Metohija” at the checkpoints on the side of Kosovo, which is how the name of the disputed region sounds according to the official version of Belgrade. Now the Kosovo Albanian government has decided to unilaterally change this agreement.
– Considering the current political situation in the country and the region, we stated serious concern over the fact that the Albanian side in Kosovo and Metohija is preparing literally “hell” in the coming days. President Vučić will meet and talk with representatives of the Serbs, our people in Kosovo and Metohija, they are currently in an extremely difficult situation, which will culminate from hour to hour,” Selakovic said.
Earlier, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said that the authorities of the unrecognized republic are trying by all means to provoke a crisis. This is how the politician reacted to the appeal of the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, to the Kosovo Serbs with a demand to re-register cars and change documents. For his part, Kurti explained his demand as “the rule of law.”
