Belgrade, June 11, 2007 – Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica stated today that Serbia is rightfully embittered with US policy of resolving the issue of Kosovo-Metohija and that the US has no right to give away Serbia’s territory to Albanians.
In a statement to the press Kostunica stressed it is America’s right to express support to various states and nations in line with its interests, but it cannot do so by giving them something that is not theirs to give.
The US must find another way to express its fondness and affection for Albanians and not present them with Serbian territory, emphasised the Prime Minister and added that by bombing Serbia the US already made a mistake huge enough for both this century and the previous one.
A new mistake in the form of unilateral support to Kosovo-Metohija’s independence would be an act of injustice and a new exertion of violence which the Serbian people would never forget. Serbia therefore expects the US to stick to the UN Charter and not resort to legal violence, said the Prime Minister.
According to Kostunica, if America turns a deaf ear to international law, it must be known in advance that Serbia will reject and annul any form of independence of its southern province.
The Prime Minister also stressed that there will never be an independent Kosovo for Serbia, and that it will always remain a constituent and inalienable part of Serbia.
