Vucic asked Li to, as a friend of Serbia, "regularly report to the Chinese leadership on the development of the situation in Kosovo and Metohija," the Serbian president's cabinet said in a press release on Tuesday.

"It is quite clear that the announcement of the formation of an army and insisting on a 100 percent tax on goods from central Serbia is aimed at expelling the Serb people from Kosovo and Metohija, because it is preventing their survival," said Vucic.

He warned that "such irresponsible behavior of Pristina could lead to disaster, because Serbia cannot and will not quietly look at the destruction of the Serb people," and asked "brotherly China to use its role and influence in the world and help maintain peace and stability."

Li said that China "fully understands what is happening" and that "the independent and peaceful policies of Serbia and President Vucic bother certain factors in international politics," the press release said.

"For China, Kosovo and Metohija is an integral part of Serbia and we remain committed to respecting Serbia's territorial integrity and sovereignty," Li stressed.
