Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic stated that the letter and tweets from British MP Alicia Kearns, Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Bundestag Michael Roth, and US Senator Bob Menendez were more than welcome as they provided living proof that Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti enjoyed full support and encouragement for undermining peace and stability in the Balkans.

Brnabic reminded on Twitter that Kurti avoided implementing the reached agreements, establishing the Community of Serb Municipalities (CSM), and adhering to the Ohrid Agreement.

"All anyone needs to know about democracy and the rule of law in Kosovo* is this: since the beginning of this year, six Serbs were shot by members of the Kosovo* security apparatus – and no one was held responsible; a member of the Kosovo* police, who shot at an 11-year-old boy and a 21-year-old young man on Christmas Eve, has been released from custody and is now a free man; since the beginning of Kurti’s administration in 2021, to date, 32 Serbs were unlawfully arrested, with some of them imprisoned for over 20 months without any charges, in addition to enduring torture, maltreatment, and daily insults on a national basis," Brnabic stated.

She emphasized that the most striking example of the credibility and objectivity of those who initiated this letter was that Alicia Kearns had managed to become one of the rare individuals whose public statements had to be refuted by KFOR.

"When Kearns alleged that the Serbian Orthodox Church is smuggling weapons into Kosovo*, KFOR, as the military mission of NATO, stated: "There is no evidence regarding the alleged smuggling carried out in Orthodox churches by ambulances," Brnabic recalled.

She pointed out that despite this clear statement from KFOR, Kearns continued to "parade these lies," even in the letter, and that it summarized all anyone needed to know about the letter itself.
