It was clearly stated to all international factors that any military intervention that would breach the agreement reached in Brussels, as well as those reached with NATO and KFOR, would cause a reaction from Serbia, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Wednesday after the media allegations that Kosovo forces were preparing to take over the facilities of Mining and Metallurgy Complex Trepca in the north, news agencies reported.
“Everyone knows well that no one dares to play with fire and expect lack of reaction from Serbia. Serbia will react”, Dacic said to the reporters.
The stories about Kosovo’s plan to attack the north and take over Trepca were launched first by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and the pro-regime tabloids were using this to make the situation as electrified as possible so they were creating a picture of some sort of “blitzkrieg” of Kosovo forces.
Dacic was a guest on Wednesday morning at TV Pink and when asked if Serbs in northern Kosovo should be afraid he responded that they should be “practical”, and that the basic advantage over “the enemy” was a possibility to predict the events and preparations.
“We have warned NATO and KFOR that our army will intervene if Serbs are attacked”, Dacic said.
