President Vucic calls Ivanovic’s murder ‘terrorist act’

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said Tuesday that Serbia views the fatal attack on Oliver Ivanovic in Kosovo earlier in the day as a “terrorist act.”

“Serbia will take all necessary measures so the killer or killers are found,” he pledged.

Vucic said the country is demanding that international missions in Kosovo include his country in their investigation into the killing of the leading Serb politician in Kosovo, AP reported.

Vucic said “there are interesting details that point who might be the killers.” He did not elaborate.

Serbia lost authority over Kosovo after the 1998-99 war and the former Serbian province declared independence in 2008. Serbia has refused to recognize the split.

Vucic said the Serbian delegation has left EU-mediated talks in Brussels on normalizing ties with Kosovo because “it makes no sense to talk in such circumstances.”
