The initiative by these two opposition politicians in Montenegro is addressed at Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, and the chairman of the Presidency of Bosnia-Herzegovina Milorad Dodik.
Montenegro-based website CdM reports that Mandic and Knezevic said in a joint statement that Serbia has always been "the impetus engine of the Balkans," and pointed out to "dangerous trends" in the region announced recently by Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, which refer to the creation of an "anti-Serb coalition" consisting of Albania, Montenegro, Croatia, Macedonia, and so-called Kosovo.
It is added that Vucic has been informed about the current social and political situation, especially emphasizing the "institutional persecution of the Serb people in Montenegro."
"Mandic and Knezevic met Aleksandar Vucic and informed him about the Democratic Front's activities aimed at constitutional changes that would have the Serb people and the Serbian language community regulated in the Constitution as they should be, bearing in mind the multi-century state identity of Montenegro, which there attempts to falsify or prohibit through rigid legal solutions, with the aim of creating neo-Dukla state standards" - the statement said.
At the same time, Mandic and Knezevic expressed their gratitude for the adoption of their earlier proposal to open a consulate of the Republic of Serbia in the northern part of Montenegro, most likely in Berane.
They also announced that agreement was reached during their meeting with Vucic to further intensify joint activities in promoting and preserving national, cultural and spiritual values that inextricably connect Montenegro and Serbia.
