Jevtic: It is embarrassing and unacceptable to stop displaced people to visit their sanctuary in the 21st century

The blockade of roads and the prevention of displaced persons at least at the daily visit to the Church of the Holy Trinity in the village of Petrič near Klina is a shameful act that brings nothing good to anyone living in Kosovo.

"This is unacceptable, and to  this and similar incidents we  must stand in the way," said the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Communities and Return in Resignation Dalibor Jevtic after information that a group of displaced Serbs was prevented from visiting the church on a big Serbian holiday.

The Minister notes that it is sad that this is not the only incident of this kind, but that this is something that is often repeated.

"We had more of these situations. It is sad that, in this way, Serbs who are displaced are aware that they are not welcome in Kosovo," the minister said.

Jevtic points out that he will use his authority with the international community as well as political representatives of Albanians and relevant institutions in Kosovo to point out the seriousness of the situation and the harmfulness that these events are causing.

"The consequences of what is happening today are great. This is not just the prevention of displaced people visiting the church and preaching their faith, this is a blockade of everything we are trying to do in terms of returning and surviving Serbs in Kosovo," Dalibor Jevtic emphasized.
