Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has blamed his opponents for organizing violent protests in Belgrade.
The protests have been held against Vucic and the government's policy, including their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Reuters reported.
Police officers have been deployed near the parliament not to let opponents into the building.
According to Reuters, the demonstrators were throwing rocks and flares chanting: “We will not give up Kosovo” and “Vucic thief.”
While being in Paris, Vucic accused his political opponents of organizing the protests.
According to him, if they continue it would be difficult to contain the pandemic. "The problem is that they (the protests) became violent, because they (opponents) ... they don’t have anything to offer to the people," he noted.
