Ser­bia con­demns plan for new army

China Daily (Latin America Weekly) - - World -

The Ser­bian gov­ern­ment se­verely con­demned on Fri­day the de­ci­sion by the par­lia­ment of what it con­sid­ers its south­ern prov­ince of Kosovo and Me­to­hija to es­tab­lish the so-called “Kosovo army”, read a news re­lease, which added that Bel­grade will strive to main­tain peace. Kosovo uni­lat­er­ally de­clared in­de­pen­dence from Ser­bia in 2008. Ser­bia re­jects that and con­sid­ers

Kosovo its own prov­ince. At Fri­day’s ses­sion, the gov­ern­ment in Bel­grade op­posed the trans­for­ma­tion of the Kosovo Se­cu­rity Force into an army, ar­gu­ing that the de­ci­sion is “a gross vi­o­la­tion of the prin­ci­ples of in­ter­na­tional law”, adding that this is also “the big­gest threat by Pristina to re­gional peace so far”.
