Serbia’s Deputy Minister for Kosovo, Bojan Andjelkovic, announced yesterday that 450 Kosovo Serb families have expressed their desire to return to their homes in Kosovo.
“By Friday, there were 450 families registered [to return to their homes in Kosovo]. Since the campaign will continue until the end of June, I believe that the number will end up being around 600 families,” he told reporters at a news conference sponsored by the League of Associations of Internally Displaced Persons.
He said that the ministry was prepared to help those families return to Kosovo.
Serbia is currently discussing returns to Kosovo with the UNHCR, the main international body dealing with returnees.
Protection of minorities in Kosovo and their rights remains a cause for concern and is closely monitored by the international community.
