What is currently taking place in Kosovo poses a security risk of the highest order and, at present, is Serbia’s greatest security challenge, Defense Minister Milos Vucevic said on March 27.
Vucevic told Prva TV that Serbia must demonstrate calm, courage and wisdom because he expects the country to face increasing pressure due to the war in Ukraine, which is transforming into a positional war with a high level of destruction and great casualties.
“What they began with Kosovo in 1999, then in 2008 – and by ‘they’ I mean the West – is a Pandora’s Box and you can’t know how it will be used. It suits some, it doesn’t suit others, depending on the situation. That’s why Serbia is being pressured to untangle the Kosovo-Metohian knot and to, in their eyes, resolve it once and for all,” the minister said, adding that Serbia is being asked to cede part of its territory.
Questioned about the Community of Serb Municipalities, Vucevic expressed his fear that Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti will create the Community in the form of “an empty shell,” to fulfill appearances only, instead of abiding by the principles of the Brussels Agreement.
