Jeremic: Churches in Kosovo are, and will remain Serbian
Vuk Jeremic stated on Tuesday that on Serbia′s election to the UNESCO World Heritage Committee will strengthen its positions regarding the nation′s heritage.
The Serbian foreign minister stressed that it will help in efforts to prevent the attempts of renaming Serbian Orthodox Christian monasteries in Kosovo and refer to them as "Kosovar". “If they are not Serbian, than nothing is. This deals a blow to the very core of our national identity, but as of next year we will be in a much better position to protect our identity,” Jeremić said in a statement for Tanjug.
He said that despite everything Serbia has managed to defend its cultural heritage in Kosovo, and that as of 2012, when its mandate in the UNESCO World Heritage Committee starts, it will be even more successful.
