However, Vulin assessed that the silence of the European Union and NATO when it
comes to the statements of Ramush Haradinaj and Hashim Thaci was "worrying."
"Of course, Haradinaj, just like Thaci, cannot endanger peace and stability on
any centimeter of the territory of the Republic of Serbia, and that is why the
Serbian Army exists, anyway," the minister said in a statement.
"Of course we are strong enough and, of course we are ready enough to prevent
any terrorist, whether convicted or not, such as Ramush Haradinaj, from
endangering peace in the territory of the Republic of Serbia and elsewhere in
the Balkans," Vulin said.
His statement came after Haradinaj, who serves as Kosovo's prime minister,
referred to the towns of Bujanovac and Presevo in the southern part of central
Serbia as "Eastern Kosovo."
Vulin also stressed that it was "worrying that the entire European Union and
NATO are so conspicuously silent when Thaci threatens with guns
and when Haradinaj talks about some 'Eastern Kosovo'."
"It would be time for them to speak and calm the entire Balkans with their
clear statement, with a clear view that Thaci and Haradinaj speak only for
themselves, and do not have the support either of the EU or NATO for what they
are saying, and for attempts to endanger peace and security in the whole of the
Balkans. It's time they spoke up," Vulin stressed.
