The head of NATO from Belgrade: The gathering of the Serbian army on the border does not help
The Secretary General of NATO, Jens Stoltenberg, said this Tuesday in Belgrade that the gathering of Serbian army forces near the border with Kosovo does not help to calm the tense situation between the two countries.
Tensions between Kosovo and Serbia reached a peak on September 24 when the Kosovo Police was attacked by an armed group of Serbs in the village of Banjské in Switzerland in the north of the country, where Sergeant Afrim Bunjaku was killed. Three Serb attackers were killed in the ensuing fighting.
Shortly after the attack, Serbia sent its forces near the Kosovo border, before withdrawing them after the United States and the European Union reacted.
"Both sides should reduce tensions and refrain from escalating actions," Stoltenberg said at a media conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Tuesday morning.
The responsibility for the September 24 attack was claimed by Millan Radoicic, the former vice-president of Lista Serbe, the largest party of Serbs in Kosovo that enjoys the support of Belgrade. Serbia has moved its troops near the border with Kosovo several times in the past.
"The gathering of the forces of the Serbian Army near the border with Kosovo would not help to calm the situation", said Stoltenberg.
