CEO and Founder of The Pavlovic Today at the State Department Press Briefing with Matt Miller

Today, Serbia is somberly observing a day of mourning in the wake of violent clashes that erupted in Kosovo on Sunday. Notably absent, however, has been any message of condolences from the US State Department to the Serbian victims. While Secretary Blinken expressed his condolences for the loss of a Kosovo Police Officer, there was a noticeable absence of any mention of the Serbian victims in his statement.

During today’s press briefing at the State Department, The Pavlovic Today asked Secretary Blinken’s Spokesperson what kind of message this conveys to the Serbs in Kosovo.

“I think we have consistently expressed our condolences to the victims of violence both in this situation and around the world,” responded Miller, acknowledging for the first time after Sunday the Serbian victims who were killed in Banjska, Kosovo.

“One of the messages we have for both sides in this conflict is that they should refrain from violence and return to the EU-facilitated dialogue,” conveyed Miller.

“That continues to be our message.”
