The EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue, Miroslav Lajčak, expressed his deep concern about the situation in northern Kosovo and made an urgent appeal for both sides to reduce the tension.
“I have informed the heads of EU missions about the situation in northern Kosovo. I am concerned and I would like to appeal for an urgent decrease in tensions,” Lajčak wrote on his Twitter account yesterday. He also said it was important to “reduce tensions, restore a peaceful atmosphere and allow freedom of movement” and underlined that the EU was ready to “facilitate negotiations on all open issues in the dialogue”.
Lajčak, who arrived in Belgrade the day before yesterday for a two-day visit, spoke with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić about the crisis in Kosovo.
To remind, Kosovo Serbs have blocked two border crossings with Serbia in protest against Kosovo authorities banning cars bearing Serbian number plates from entering Kosovo which caused a lot of tension between Kosovar and Serbian authorities. The Kosovo special forces (ROSU) were dispatched the monitor and calm the situation down.
