To guarantee its security, Serbia needs to have a status of a full-fledged member of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), believes Serbian MP, member of the Radical Party Aleksandar Šešelj.

At a meeting of the parliament on March 27, he asked when the MPs are going to discuss Serbia’s joining the Collective Security Treaty Organization and reminded that Serbia has been an observer in it since 2013.

“It has turned out that Serbia cannot trust either the Brussels Dialog, or EU officials, or KFOR team, or NATO team. The Serbian nation is in danger, and we had a chance yesterday to make sure of it,” Šešelj is quoted as saying by BETA agency.

The MP reminded that on March 26, the director of the Serbian Office for Kosovo and Metohija Marko Djuric was detained in Kosovska Mitrovica and, he added, despite his personal attitude towards Djuric, it was a representative of Serbia who was humiliated.

The Radical Party member also asked how the European Union that recognized the Kosovo independence can be an unbiased mediator in the talks between Belgrade and Pristina. “The negotiations must be brought back to the aegis of the UN security Council, as we have strong protectors there, Russia and China,” Aleksandar Šešelj said.

As EADaily reported on March 26, Marko Djuric was seized by militants of the ROSU unit in Kosovska Mitrovica, then taken to Pristina and deported from Kosovo. After the incident, members of the Serb List party at the “parliament” of the separatist territory decided to leave Pristina-controlled power institutions and to establish the Community of Serb Municipalities on their own. Under the 2013 Brussels Agreement, Kosovo Serbs must unite in an association which has been strongly opposed for five years already by the separatist authorities.
