BELGRADE - I have never said Serbia would intervene militarily in case of serious conflicts in northern Kosovo, but that it would protect its people, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Tuesday after a special parliament session on Kosovo-Metohija.
Correcting a reporter, Vucic said he had never used the words "military intervention" and that he had used terms carefully.
"I did not say Serbia would intervene militarily; I said Serbia is ready to protect its people - do not add words I did not utter. We do not want to wage a war, we are protecting peace almost at all costs. 'Almost at all costs' means if someone thinks they can subject our people to a pogrom. I did not mention any interventions - you did," Vucic said in response to the reporter's question.
