    BELGRADE -- Opposition DSS leader Vojislav Koštunica has warned that Serbia is undergoing spiritual and territorial ravaging. Koštunica speaks in Belgrade on Saturday (Beta) "It is simply unbearable, the ease with which today everyone feels entitled to disparage the holy values that the Serb nation respects," said the former prime minister, addressing his party's youth forum in Belgrade on Saturday. "The most venom is directed against those values and ideals. According to this cruel logic, not only must Serbia be reduced territorially, but the Serbs cannot be what they are." Parliament is the right place for talks about Serbia's future...

    excerpt - BELGRADE: Serbia's government collapsed on Saturday and early elections loomed as pro-Western President Boris Tadic and nationalist Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica faced off over Kosovo and EU integration. Kostunica said his cabinet would meet on Monday to formally dissolve parliament and urged Tadic to call new elections for May 11, the same date as existing municipal polls. "The government of Serbia has no united policy any more on an important issue related to the future of the country, Kosovo as a part of Serbia," Kostunica told reporters in Belgrade. "Such a government could not function any more. This...

    BELGRADE, Serbia - Serbia's prime minister dissolved the government Saturday and called for new elections after clashing with his pro-Western coalition partners over Kosovo and EU membership. Vojislav Kostunica said that he will convene a government session Monday that will propose to parliament that new elections be held May 11. He accused pro-Western ministers of failing to support his efforts to preserve Kosovo as part of Serbia. "There was no united will to clearly and loudly state that Serbia can continue its path toward the EU only with Kosovo," Kostunica said. The new elections could determine whether Serbia continues toward...
  • Serbian PM visits Washington, U.N.

    BELGRADE, Serbia, July 10 (UPI) -- Serbia's premier flew to Washington Monday to tell U.S. and U.N. officials Belgrade will not accept an independent Kosovo province. Premier Vojislav Kostunica is to address the U.N. Security Council Thursday to "warn that every imposed solution (about Kosovo's future) and snatching away 15 percent of its territory is absolutely unacceptable for Serbia," a Serbian government spokesman said. Milos Aligrudic, a ranking official of Kostunica's ruling Serbian Democratic Party, said the prime minister will tell U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice that Serbia is "ready to negotiate about everything except about Kosovo's independence." Aligrudic...

    Almost 10 years after the massacre of more than 7,000 Muslim men and boys by Serbian security forces in Srebrenica, a video has surfaced that presents graphic details of their fate. Several people in the video were arrested as a result, the Serbian prime minister said Thursday. The tape - shown at the International Criminal Tribunal for the Former Yugoslavia in The Hague on Wednesday and rebroadcast on Serbian television on Thursday - shows the killing of six Muslim men by members of a Serbian paramilitary police unit. While the number of those killed represents a tiny proportion of those...

    BELGRADE, Yugoslavia - Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica will run in Serbia's upcoming presidential elections, splitting up pro-democracy votes and giving a chance to an ulranationalist candidate, a newspaper reported Thursday. The Blic daily, quoting sources from Kostunica's Democratic Party of Serbia, said he will announce the widely expected nomination for the Serbian presidency by Aug. 24. Kostunica, a moderate nationalist, is the frontrunner in pre-election polls for the vote set for Sept. 29. Kostunica's office refused to confirm the Blic report. The Serbian presidency is expected to gain power and prestige later this year after Yugoslavia is transformed into a...

    By ALEKSANDAR VASOVIC .c The Associated Press  BELGRADE, Yugoslavia (AP) - Serbia's ruling coalition moved to oust all 45 members of Yugoslav President Vojislav Kostunica's party from parliament Monday, the latest threat to Yugoslavia's political stability. On Friday, the coalition removed Kostunica's Democratic Party of Serbia from its ranks, saying it didn't support the Serbian government and tarnished the coalition's reputation. The latest move was certain to worsen the feud between Kostunica and rival Zoran Djindjic, the prime minister of Serbia, Yugoslavia's main republic. The other is Montenegro. Kostunica and Djindjic united in 2000 to oust former Yugoslav President Slobodan...
