President of the Serbian List Goran Rakic and four mayors from the north of Kosovo and Metohija, at a joint press conference with Petkovic, previously said that yesterday at a meeting with the ambassadors of Quint, they were asked to comply with the decisions of Pristina on the re-registration of Kosovo licence plates in the north of the province, as well as introducing an entry-exit document that would be issued to Serbs at administrative crossings.
He added that the Quint ambassadors stated that their countries support Kosovo's independence, and they asked the Serbs to accept the "reality on the ground", which, according to them, is an independent "Kosovo".
Petkovic pointed out that this shows the way in which the representatives of Quint talked with the mayors, adding that our country will not give up on finding a compromise solution.
We want the situation to be resolved peacefully, to find a compromise, because what is happening in Kosovo and Metohija is disturbing. Everything indicates that Albin Kurti does not want to be calm, and that Quint's messages are causing great anxiety among our residents, he said.
The Director of the Office said that the issue of the Community of Serbian Municipalities will be on the agenda of negotiations and that it will be the first thing that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic will insist on, which Pristina has refused to implement for 10 years.
All this would not have happened if the Community of Serbian Municipalities existed, because they would have collective security. And that would mean the implementation of all the agreements from 2013 and 2015, Petkovic pointed out, while requesting the representatives of Quint to make an effort to exert pressure to form the Community of Serbian Municipalities.
Rakic said that no Serb from Kosovo and Metohija, especially not those from the north of the province, will accept what the representatives of Quint are advocating.
The only instance is negotiations in Brussels and we expect that a compromise solution will be found. All eyes are on Belgrade and President Vucic, who will find a compromise solution in Brussels, he said.
The mayors of Severna Mitrovica, Leposavic, Zvecan and Zubin Potok pointed out that the Serbs in the north of Kosovo and Metohija are facing the most difficult situation in the last 20 years, and that they are experiencing constant harassment from Pristina, whose special units raid and patrol the north, follow and search people.
