Petkovic confirmed at an extraordinary press conference that President of the Republic of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic will take a helicopter to the administrative line tonight and that he will talk with the Serbs from Kosovo and Metohija regarding the removal of the barricades.
He said that during today's conversation, Vucic asked the Serbs to withdraw from the barricades, and that they will make a decision on this after the meeting with the president.
According to him, the best news today is that Dejan Pantic was released to house arrest, which shows that he is not guilty of any kind of terrorism.
After 19 days of detention, he will be with his family tonight, as confirmed by EULEX, the Director of the Office repeated and added that Prime Minister of Pristina's temporary institutions Albin Kurti could already be heard reacting to the case.
Also, as he added, the big and important news is that Nikola Nedeljkovic has arrived in central Serbia, and we managed to shorten his scandalous prison sentence by two months.
Petkovic pointed out that guarantees have arrived, that is, that a joint statement from the US and the EU has been received in which the second request is clearly fulfilled - it is confirmed that there are no arrest or prosecution lists for those who participated in peaceful protests or at the barricades.
We know that the Serbs do not trust Kurti. Now, with this statement, our people at the barricades are protected, he underlined.
The third request includes the guarantees we received from Kfor, where they clearly stated and confirmed that the Kosovo security forces cannot go to the north of Kosovo and Metohija without an agreement with Kfor and four mayors from the north of the province, he said.
That statement becomes a source of formal and substantive law, a kind of agreement, we have an agreement that applies to all parties, which includes Belgrade, but also the Serbian people in the north of Kosovo and Metohija, which shows the necessity of respecting everything agreed so far, Petkovic emphasized.
He said that in the coming period, the state will continue to fight for the remaining demands of the Serbs to return to the institutions, and that is, above all, the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities.
