NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said after the conversation with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić that those responsible for the violence in Banjska must be brought to justice and welcomed Serbia’s willingness to cooperate in that case.
NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the establishment of the Community of Serbian Municipalities is the key to normalizing relations between Belgrade and Pristina.
At a joint conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, he called on Belgrade and Pristina to continue the dialogue because, he pointed out, that is the only way to peace.
“We also discussed the tensions in the north of Kosovo and the importance of the KFOR peacekeeping mission, which has been guaranteeing security for two decades. We will continue to do so impartially and within the mandate. KFOR members suffered attacks, we saw riots in September, the perpetrators must be brought to justice.” Stoltenberg said.
He said that after that, KFOR deployed 2,000 soldiers to KiM, which is the largest reinforcement of KFOR in the past decade, and emphasized that he supports the coordination of the army and KFOR.
“I am counting on all sides to reduce tensions and refrain from escalating actions. Massing forces of the Serbian Army near the crossing would not help,” he said.
