During a presentation and open discussion that lasted for two and a half hours, Petkovic told the diplomats present that Belgrade is doing everything to preserve peace and stability and that Serbia in no way wanted or took part in the recent tragic events in Banjska.
He underlined that an objective and unbiased investigation into these events is necessary, given that Pristina is trying to label Serbia as the culprit with numerous pieces of disinformation and untruths.
During the presentation, Belgrade denied Pristina’s lies with numerous documents, photos and videos and presented evidence that clearly shows that Pristina is the root of all problems.
The delegation of Serbia reminded the interlocutors using valid arguments of numerous incidents and attacks by Pristina that are exclusively targeted against the Serbs, underlining that the only culprit for the unbearable situation that resulted in the events of 24 September is Albin Kurti who, with his policy of terror and institutional violence against the Serbian people in the north of Kosovo and Metohija, led to the tragic events.
Petkovic reiterated the request that KFOR take over the role of protection of Serbs in the north of Kosovo and Metohija in its entirety and replace the so-called “Kosovo police”, which the Serbian people perceive exclusively as an occupying force.
The only way forward is through the immediate de-escalation and withdrawal of the “Kosovo police” from the north of Kosovo and Metohija, as well as through the continuation of the dialogue and concrete steps on the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities, Petkovic stated.
