Yesterday and today Serbian deputy prime minister and head of the Coordinating Center for Kosovo and Metohija Dr. Nebojsa Covic and his associates visited Serb enclaves and monasteries in Metohija (Western part of UN administered Kosovo Province). On Wednesday Dr. Covic visited the Serb villages of Crkolez, Suvo Grlo, Banje, Osojane, Bica and Gorazdevac where he spoke with the remaining Serbs of this district about the possibility of improving their lives and overcoming existing problems. On several occasions Dr. Covic emphasized the readiness of the Coordinating Center and the Serbian Government to help the Serbs in these villages survive and to stay, as well as to contribute to the return of displaced persons. In the evening Dr. Covic visited the monastery of the Pec Patriarchate.
On Thursday morning the Coordinating Center delegation toured the destroyed Serb village of Belo Polje near Pec where the return of Serb refugees is due to take place in the near future.
After the visit to Belo Polje Dr. Covic and his associates also visited Visoki Decani Monastery where he spoke with Abbot Teodosije and the monks, and learned more about the life of this holy shrine under existing conditions of isolation. Dr. Covic emphasized the firm willingness of the Government and the Coordinating Center of Kosovo and Metohija to assist our Orthodox shrines, which represent key centers for the survival of the Serb people and the preservation of the age old spiritual and cultural values of the Serb people.
After his visit to Decani Dr. Covic set out to visit the Serbs in Orahovac, Velika Hoca and the Brezovica Mountain region.
