Aleksandar Vucic, the president of Serbia, stated in an interview with local media that the situation in northern Kosovo is tense and that inhabitants of these areas require an immediate solution.
The Serbian leader, who was invited to Happy Television following a meeting with Serbs from the north, said that his nation is prepared for a compromise to resolve this issue, but that the mayors of the municipalities must step down.
We are willing to reach an agreement; all I ask is that you remove the dishonest mayors from the municipal buildings and allow them to retire. We are prepared to make concessions as well as to form the Association, stated Vucic.
The President of Serbia also talked in length about his recent encounters with the US representative, Escobar, and the High Representative of the EU, Laják.
“I had a not-so-easy conversation with Miroslav Lajčák, with some American representatives, and with one of the highest representatives of the EU. The situation is getting complicated and it concerns me greatly. I don’t think I should mention which states they are. I greatly like Chancellor Scholz and consider President Macron to be a political ally. It was an extremely challenging conversation. They must be understood since they don’t desire conflict or war. It is our responsibility to maintain peace, the interests of our people, and the survival of our nation. Therefore, it is not easy to talk even with Serbs from Kosovo,” said Vučić.
