Zëri reports that Serb leadership in Belgrade has told Kosovo Serbs not to join Kosovar institutions since conditions for that have not yet been created. The instruction came out of the meeting of Council for Kosovo held in Belgrade and attended by Serbian PM Vojislav Kostunica as well as Serb politicians from Kosovo.
The decision of the Serb List for Kosovo and Metohija not to join Kosovo institutions was taken after the proposal of the Serbian Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica and advisors of President Boris Tadic.
Zëri reports that representatives of the Serb List have different stances on whether they should participate or not in Kosovo institutions. Goran Bogdanovic from the Democratic Party for Kosovo, which is a member of the List, says that they will respect the stance of president, prime minister and Coordination Center not to join Kosovo institutions.
However the leader of the List, Oliver Ivanovic, said before the meeting in Belgrade that it is high time Belgrade stopped dealing with obstructing the work of Kosovo institutions, and that it all now depends on the leadership of Serbia as to when the List MPs will join the institutions’.
Ivanovic has also said that for as long as they do not take part in institutions, they are only commentators.
