31st Sitting of the Defence and Internal Affairs Committee

The Committee on Kosovo-Metohija and the Defence and Internal Affairs Committee held a sitting closed to the public on 17 May 2019, and issue the following statement:


“At the joint sitting, the Committee on Kosovo-Metohija and the Defence and Internal Affairs Committee considered the Information of the Ministry of the Interior, Ministry of Defence and the Security-Information Agency on the current situation in the AP Kosovo-Metohija with a special focus on security threats by radical Islamists and jihadists.

The current situation in the AP Kosovo-Metohija is characterized by a complication of the security situation especially by the unilateral moves of Pristina such as the adoption of the assembly resolution on Serbia’s war crimes in Kosovo which the Committee on Kosovo-Metohija and the Defence and Internal Affairs Committee believe to be unacceptable, based on brutal lies, intimidating to the Serbian people and fuelling hatred against the Serbian people and Serbia, and therefore reject.

For a long time, one of the security challenges has been the Wahhabi-Salafi groups acting from the position of radical Islam. Considering the number of people living on the territory of AP Kosovo-Metohija, the area has been the origin of most of the extremists who went to fight for the terrorist group Islamic State. The returnees are capable of continuing terrorist activities. The members of the Wahhabi movement, returnees from the Middle East and extremists deported from Western Europe, are a serious factor of security risks in AP Kosovo-Metohija.

So far, there are no findings about concrete threats or plans of attack against the Serbian population in AP Kosovo-Metohija by radical Islamists and jihadists, however there is a real danger of smaller terrorist attacks by radicalized individuals.

The Committee on Kosovo-Metohija and the Defence and Internal Affairs Committee demand that the international presence in AP Kosovo-Metohija dedicate maximum attention to all security threats, especially against the Serbian people in AP Kosovo-Metohija who are the ones most endangered and duly take all steps needed to prevent the realization of possible violent plans by extremists, radical Islamists and jihadists.

The Committee on Kosovo-Metohija and the Defence and Internal Affairs Committee will continue to follow the security situation in AP Kosovo-Metohija.”
