TANJUG_maliBELGRADE/PRISTINA – Serbian PM Aleksandar Vučić had a fierce verbal confrontation with Kosovo President Hashim Thaçi on Tuesday over establishment of a Kosovo army, the RTS has learned, Tanjug reports.
During a phone conversation, Vučić and Thaçi took completely opposite positions on the matter, the broadcaster said.

Vučić said establishment of a Kosovo army would bring additional instability for all.

They agreed that discussions be continued to keep the situation from getting out of control and maintain peace, the RTS reported.

A statement from Vučić’s office said he had spoken with Thaçi about the significance and the aftermath of EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini’s visit to the Western Balkans.

Taçi presented earlier in the day to Kosovo Assembly Speaker Kadri Veselji a draft bill on transforming the Kosovo Security Force into a Kosovo army.
