Serbian Minister for Kosovo and Metohija (KiM) Goran Bogdanovic expects freedom of movement will be established in Kosovo as early as Tuesday.

Serbian Minister for Kosovo and Metohija (KiM) Goran Bogdanovic expects freedom of movement will be established in Kosovo as early as Tuesday.

He said Monday peace would be re-established and the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina resumed.

The Sunday meeting between representatives of Serbs from northern Kosovo and Serbian President Boris Tadic made Bogdanovic positive that the current crisis in the Kosovo north will be resolved.

"The meeting (Serb representatives had) with Tadic made me even more positive that the crisis will be overcome. The message from the representatives of Serbs form the north, who told Tadic everyone down there backed the Serbian state and that they did not have any spare homeland, instilled in me the hope that the situation will change," Bogdanovic said.

Bogdanovic said it was futile to prejudice anything regarding the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue as the current situation in Kosovo was after all, still tense.

He said he believed the international community, particularly the EU, would pressurize Pristina to get back to dialogue.

Dialogue is the only way to "resolve all the issues in this region. I am afraid anything else could take us in a wrong direction," Bogdanovic said.

Bogdanovic told Tanjug it was most important to solve problems by peaceful means as everybody in northern Kosovo was against violence.

He said people from northern Kosovo were against violence and war, which is why he was dismissing completely the allegations that people behind the roadblocks were being paid by criminals to stand there.

"People who live there are peaceful, they know what they want, they want the situation to be resolved peacefully and they are fighting for their interests by legitimate means. Everything else, all the propaganda by Pristina and part of the international community in KiM is simply not true. Of course, the entire world has criminals, including Kosovo, but the Serbian state cannot be held responsible for that," Bogdanovic said.

Bogdanovic noted that KFOR was very constructive when it came to the current situation.

"We had direct talks with Buehler and I can say that despite the lack of confidence in KFOR Buehler has proven himself to be very responsible, constructive and willing to solve the problem. It was obvious he wanted the crisis to end peacefully as soon as possible," Bogdanovic said.

On the other hand, unfortunately, EULEX and UNMIK were nowhere to be found, Bogdanovic noted.

Bogdanovic believes there is no much need for himself and Head of the Belgrade team in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue Borislav Stefanovic to visit KiM again soon. He added that their role was now to help the people in Kosovo with money and enable them to live out of their jobs and that a relevant solution should be found through talks.
