Serbia: 'Serbs are fed up with everything' - President Vucic after deal with Pristina on license plates

Serbia, Belgrade
noviembre 24, 2022 at 14:56 GMT +00:00 · Published

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic addressed the public in Belgrade on Thursday, relating the announcement that Belgrade and Pristina had reached a deal on the licence plates dispute but that the negotiations were ongoing.

"Serbs are fed up with everything, they are fed up with blackmail and mistreatment, they are fed up with bullying and international pressures in which no one cares about them, but treat them as a national minority," said Vucic.

November 22 marked the first day of Kosovo's decision to start fining drivers who haven't pre-registered their licence plates from SRB (Serbian) to RKS (Kosovo). Drivers who reside in Kosovo and drive cars with licence plates issued in Serbia will be fined 150 EUR (154 USD).

According to Vucic, however, "old license plates are still valid. People who own these license plates, and that's around 7,000 people in Kosovo and Metohija and some 2,000 people in Central Serbia, can continue driving these vehicles without any interference and any penalties."
