Bishop Teodosije talked with Matthew Palmer, US Special Envoy for Western Balkans

Bishop of Raška-Prizren Teodosije received at Visoki Dečani Monastery today the US Special Envoy for Western Balkans Mr. Matthew Palmer with his associates.

Bishop Teodosije informed Mr. Palmer about the problems the Serbian Orthodox Diocese of Raška and Prizren is facing in Kosovo and Metohija.

The Bishop particularly spoke about the problems of our people in the light of a series of recent incidents and the refusal of the Kosovo institutions to implement the decision of the Constitutional Court on Dečani Monastery land.

Bishop Teodosije expressed his position that our Church has always been open for a dialog but that it implies the readiness of the local institutions in Kosovo and Metohija to respect decisions of courts and the rule of law.
