Speaking on Friday in the town of Kraljevo, central Serbia, he appraised that "these plans can be thwarted in cooperation with international organizations".
"Election material could be confiscated, and people people who are taking part in the election process could be arrested, which would endanger not only the elections but also the safety of those people," according to Dačić.
The minister stressed that it was "very important for Serbia to insist that international organizations in Kosovo and Metohija, such as UNMIK and OSCE, take part in organizing the elections".
"An agreement with international organizations would be an obstacle to such attacks," said he.
Dačić also noted that "holding elections according to Serbian laws is the essential goal of our state".
Earlier on Friday, Defense Minister Dragan Šutanovac was quoted as saying that "certain structures" wished to destabilize Kosovo, and this context welcomed NATO's decision to reinforce its mission in the province, KFOR.
