April 27, 2009

ImageThe Serbian Ministry for Kosmet assessed that tensions in Brdjani near Kosovska Mitrovica cannot be resolved with tear gas and shock bombs, which is why it requests of KFOR and EULEX to exert additional efforts to initiate talks with representatives of Serbs and Albanians. Condemning all kinds of violence that additional aggravates already unstable situation in Kosmet, the Ministry pointed that the return of refugees must be a two-way process with consent of both sides. Unilateral decisions on reconstruction of Albanian houses in Brdjani were made without consent of the local Serb community, which will only worsen the situation and make the process of finding a compromise-based solution more difficult – the communiqué reads. The Ministry underlines that the Serbian authorities expect of KFOR and EULEX to be equally determined in securing all necessary conditions for the return of Serbs to their hearths. The Serbs in Brdjani are protesting over a permit given without a guaranteed reciprocity to the Albanians to reconstruct their houses in this settlement. Members of the special EULEX police units and KFOR have today again used tear gas and shock bombs to prevent Serbs from approaching the separating line with Albanians, with one young man getting wounded by rubber bullets.
