Press Release
Monday, November 9, 2015

The Serbian Orthodox Church welcomes the decision of UNESCO which rejected the proposal to receive so-called Kosova into its organization. The entire time Serbia and the Serbian Orthodox Church sought for the delaying of this debate in order to avoid unnecessary political confrontation, but since Serbia's request was denied voting took place which showed that there was no readiness in UNESCO to make hasty political decisions which endanger the safety of the Cultural heritage and the dialogue that Belgrade is already leading with Pristina.

It is obvious that the issue of the spiritual and cultural heritage can not be solved through politicization, particularly in a situation where, after the war in Kosovo and Metohija, so many Christian Orthodox shrines and cemeteries were destroyed. Confidence has to be built through deeds, not words, and certainly not negating the very difficult situation in which our faithful people and our holy sites have been living in for many years after the war in Kosovo and Metohija.

Thus, on this occasion the Serbian Orthodox Church calls for dialogue and confidence-building as the only way to solve all problems and thanks all those countries that have given their support to the path of dialogue and understanding.

Serbian Patriach to His Spiritual Children:
Let us Preserve our Serbian and World Spiritual and Cultural Heritage!

By the Grace of God
Archbishop of Pec, Metropolitan of Belgrade-Karlovci
and Serbian Patriarch Irinej


Dear spiritual children,

Our brothers and sisters in Kosovo and Metohija and the holy shrines of the Serbian Orthodox Church are in great danger, because the proponents of the so-called state of Kosovo want to obtain membership in UNESCO and confiscate Serbian churches and monasteries. Therefore, the Serbian Patriarchate calls all pious and Orthodox people, all people of good will and everyone who cares about the rights and justice in the world, to oppose the so-called state of Kosovo's membership in UNESCO, which threaten to cause a humanitarian disaster and destruction of Serbian Orthodox shrines and thus the UNESCO world's heritage.
