COMMUNIQUE BY BISHOP TEODOSIJE OF RASKA AND PRIZREN

As a Bishop of Raska and Prizren I would like to express my gravest concern on occasion of unfortunate events these days in Belgrade and other cities of Serbia in which the life and property of citizens of other ethnicity are endangered. Destruction of properties belonging to ethnic Albanians and Goranis deserves every condemnation and can jeopardize the safety of Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija, who themselves are exposed to provocations and attacks. I am taking this opportunity to make an appeal that the reason prevails over hatred so that the violence should not continue.
