The Serbian president thanked Stoltenberg in a telephone conversation for his statement that "this was no time" to form an army of so-called Kosovo and that so-called Kosovo's intent to transform its security forces into an army was coming "at the wrong time."
Vucic expressed his concern about so-called Kosovo's intent to form an army and the dangers that this step carries for the survival of the Serb people in Kosovo and Metohija and the security of Serbia, as well as peace and stability in the region.
As announced, two interlocutors agreed to stay in permanent and direct contact, and that the Serbian Army will re-establish daily contacts with KFOR forces in Kosovo and Metohija, in order to exchange information and monitor the development of the situation.
Vucic informed the NATO secretary general about the problems that Serbia, and especially the Serbian people in Kosovo and Metohija, face due to the irrational move by Pristina to impose a 100 percent tax on goods from central Serbia, contrary to agreements reached.
Stoltenberg expressed his gratitude to Vucic for the excellent organization of the emergency relief exercise, which with 900 participants, was the biggest exercise of its kind to date, held in October in Serbia.
He also emphasized how much he appreciates Serbia's contribution to peace and stability in the region.
