Minister of Agriculture and Trade Dušan Petrović says Serbia “will not back down from Resolution 1244” when it comes to regional representation of Kosovo.
The government believes this is a legitimate position, he said on Tuesday in Belgrade.
“The Serbian government will continue to insist that Kosovo be represented in line with Resolution 1244,” Petrović told reporters at the Faculty of Agriculture.
He stressed the government cannot and will not go below this standard and is fully convinced this is a legitimate position.
Petrović stressed the most important thing are the lives of the people in Kosovo, because “national interests cannot be protected if there are no people in Kosovo.”
The minister added the government does not care only about protecting Serbs in Kosovo, “but also for (ethnic) Albanians and KFOR troops”.
