BELGRADE, January 16. /TASS/. Peace in Kosovo on January 14 was preserved only due to Serbia’s wisdom despite the provocations by Albanians, Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic told the Pink TV channel on Sunday.
"Thanks to the wish and wisdom of Serbia, we avoided clashes and sustained peace in Kosovo," the premier stressed.
He commented on the news that a train, which had departed from Belgrade early on Saturday, was halted at the border with Kosovo amid the threats of attacks at it by Kosovo Albanians.
Vucic said the clashes were prevented then which could "lead to casualties on both sides."
Earlier, Serbia’s President Tomislav Nikolic warned that the next Albanian provocation would come to a bad end. "We don’t want clashes but will be forced to act not as we want to but as we should do," he said, adding that if "they start killing Serbs (in Kosovo)" then Serbia will protect them.
On Saturday, Kosovo Albanians tried to stage provocations when the Serbian train service from Belgrade to the northern Kosovo town of Kosovska Mitrovica was relaunched eighteen years after its last run. They prepared to attack the train seeking to provoke large-scale clashes. Special units of Albanians entered the territory of the Serbian enclave, violating all the agreements reached with the mediation of the European Union. The train was returned to Belgrade in order not to put the passengers at risk.
The Serbian premier pledged to inform Moscow, Beijing and Washington about the provocation of Albanians, voicing disappointment over the reaction of Brussels.
