The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vu?i?, called on the Serbian citizens in the north of Kosovo not to enter into conflict with NATO.

He called for peaceful protests.

Vucic addressed the public on Monday evening, May 29, after KFOR intervened to disperse Serbian demonstrators gathered in front of the Zvecan Municipality building in northern Kosovo. Groups of Serbs protested in the municipalities of Zveçan, Zubin Potok and Leposaviç in the north of Kosovo, opposing the new mayors of Albanian nationality in the municipalities with a Serbian majority.

Vucic said that on Tuesday morning, May 30, he will hold a meeting with the representatives of the QUINT states.

He also stated that during the day he spoke with "Americans, Germans and Europeans".

Vucic said that during the KFOR intervention, 52 Serbs were injured, of which, according to him, three suffered serious injuries.

The Kosovo police have reported that they have arrested five people suspected of attacks and violence against KFOR members in Zveçan in the north of Kosovo.

The President of Serbia reiterated that Serbia is in favor of maintaining peace.

"If the Albanian invader shoots, then the situation will be different", he said.

When on Friday, May 26, when the Kosovo Police helped the newly elected mayors of the municipalities to enter the municipal buildings, Vucic gave the order to raise the combat readiness to the highest level.

"We have deployed our forces in places where I think it is necessary," he said.

Tensions reignited in Kosovo's northern municipalities after the mayors emerged from the April 23 emergency elections - all Albanians - were opposed by local Serbs.

On May 26, five policemen were injured during clashes with Serb protesters who threw stones at them. The police responded with stun grenades and tear gas.

The previous heads of the four municipalities in the north, North Mitrovica, Zubin Potok, Zveçan and Leposaviq, inhabited by a majority of Serbs, were from the Serbian List. However, they resigned in November last year, as a sign of dissatisfaction with a decision of the Government of Kosovo to re-register cars with RKS - Republic of Kosovo license plates.

The elections of April 23 were boycotted by the Serbian List and by the Serbian majority population in the north, which now does not accept the results, namely the new presidents./ REL
