Several dozen people assembled Tuesday outside the Kosovo Government building in Pristina, protesting against the request of the international community for the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities (CSM).

The participants of the protest that began at the same time as the meeting at the US Embassy with the CSM on the agenda asked the international community to “reconsider” its position on the formation of the CSM, reported Beta.

“No one in Kosovo is forgetting Europe’s help during the struggle for freedom and for building independent Kosovo. Europe should know that the Albanians are hugely against the CSM because they are convinced that this new fragmentation will lead the country to the same situation as it did Bosnia, through Republika Srpska,” said one of the protesters.

The participants of the Tuesday gathering announced mass protests against the formation of the CSM.

“Protests everywhere will be massive, peaceful and in support of (Kosovo Prime Minister) Albin Kurti’s Government, which is working with all its might to preserve Kosovo’s integrity and sovereignty. The Albanians will fight to stop the CSM and the European institutions should reconsider their position,” said the protesters.

There were no incidents at the protest.
