Jeremic: Monuments of the Serbian Orthodox Church cannot belong to the so-called republic of Kosovo
At the UNESCO General Conference in Paris, Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic stated that monasteries and churches of the Serbian Orthodox Church cannot belong to the so-called republic of Kosovo. He reminded that 4 sites listed as endangered monuments under UNESCO’s protection are located in the southern Serbian province, and as a state, Serbia is responsible for their protection. Honoring identities of all inhabitants of the province is one of preconditions for reconciliation, while excluding or negating anyone’s identity makes it impossible, Jeremic emphasized. He saluted UNESCO’s status-neutral work in Kosovo.
