BELGRADE, April 16 /TASS/. Serbia will arrest the vice-premier and foreign minister of the self-proclaimed Republic of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci, on war crimes charges if he arrives in Belgrade, Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic told journalists on Thursday.
"If Thaci arrives in Belgrade, police will act according to the law and will bring him to justice," he said.
Kosovo’s Deputy Foreign Minister Petrit Selimi said earlier that Thaci was planning to visit Belgrade to attend a conference organized by the Ambassadors of Peace non-governmental public organization.
Serbian War Crimes Prosecutor Vladimir Vukcevic said that the arrest warrant for Thaci was still valid and that Kosovo’s foreign minister could be arrested in Belgrade.
Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said in turn that he did not know whether Thaci would come to Belgrade because neither the Serbian state nor the government had got anything to do with the conference to which he had been invited.
Serbia considers Thaci, a leader of the Kosovo Liberation Army, to be a war criminal.
