The Serbian Orthodox Church observed Christmas today
, and Serbian President Boris Tadic offered a message of peace in his speech on the celebration.
From the article:
"We are sending a message of peace to everyone, not only the Serbs, but also the Albanians and everyone living in Kosovo," Tadic said at the 14th-century Serb Orthodox monastery Visoki Decani.
Tadic, who will spend the night in the heavily secured monastery ahead of Saturday's Orthodox Christmas liturgy, said "the message of peace is also addressed to people of other faiths" in Kosovo, whose 2008 unilateral declaration of independence Serbia has never recognised.
