The head of the Serbian Government Office for Kosovo and Metohija also called for honoring of the coalition agreement on which the current Kosovo government is based.

He was reacting to a statement by the Kosovo minister in charge of the dialogue with Belgrade, Edita Tahiri, concerning the future community of Serb municipalities.

"Belgrade encourages pluralism of opinion among the province's officials that entails that some of the ministers in the Serbian southern province think like Tahiri, while some others have a completely different opinion and I call for efforts to avoid inflammatory rhetoric," Djuric said in a statement for the media over the weekend.

Tahiri previously said that the future community of Serb municipalities would not have executive powers. She was reacting to Kosovo's Minister for Communities and Return Aleksandar Jablanovic's statement, who claimed the opposite.

"The illusions of individuals, especially of officials who think they our outside of Kosovo's law and the Brussels agreement are only verbally possible, but the legal basis and the agreement from April 19 state clearly that the association of Serb municipalities should be formed based on Kosovo's existing laws," Tahiri said.
