He referred to Kosovo as an independent state, Bërnabič is angry after he was placed 'with his shoulders against the wall'
The Prime Minister of Serbia, Ana Brnabic, said that in one of the reports published on the website of the Serbian Government, the Republic of Kosovo was written, adding that this case had to do with a mistake during the translation.
Brnabic told Radio Television of Serbia that the mistake had occurred in the translation into English. She said that this mistake "is serious and unforgivable by the translator".
Kosovo declared independence in 2008, but Belgrade refuses to recognize it. The official position of Serbia is that Kosovo is still part of it.
Bërnabić said that the team of the media office in the Serbian Government is also responsible, therefore she added that there will be consequences for the workers who made this mistake.
The Serbian Prime Minister said that this content was immediately removed from the Serbian Government's website.
"I couldn't sleep last night, I don't know what I'm doing. But I'm sorry that this is being used by the opposition to gain political points", said Bërnabič.
The Serbian Prime Minister also spoke about the visit planned for February 6 of the envoy of the European Union, Miroslav Lajcak, to Pristina and Belgrade.
She said that such diplomatic activities are increasing and the pressure is intensifying, adding that she believes in the guarantees of the international community regarding the establishment of the Association of municipalities with a Serbian majority.
Bërnabiç said that Lajçak will first visit Pristina, and that according to her, that is where the problem of establishing the Association lies. She emphasized that she is not interested in the position of the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, regarding this issue.
The Serbian Prime Minister said that the parties have agreed to form the Association within the framework of the agreements reached in Brussels in 2013 and 2015 and emphasized that she believes in the guarantees of the international community that the Association will be formed based on the agreements reached in dialogue.
Kosovo opposes the establishment of a single ethnic association, expressing the fear that a Republika Srpska could be created, just like in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
The USA and the EU are demanding that Kosovo implement the agreements for the Association. Washington has clearly stated that it is against the establishment of an association that would resemble the Republika Srpska./Rel
