Serbia is demanding that the Kosovo police force immediately withdraw from the administrative line between the region of Kosovo and Metohija and Central Serbia, where peaceful Serb protests have taken place. This statement was made by the President of Serbia, Aleksandr Vucic, quoted by TASS.

According to the politician, the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo does not fulfill the terms of the peace agreement. In this regard, he demanded that Brussels influence the Kosovars.

Kosovo police units, as well as snipers, occupied the Jarine and Brnjak crossings on the administrative line between northern Kosovo and Central Serbia on the morning of 20 September. Law enforcement officials claim that the purpose of the transfer of special forces is “to modernize the infrastructure and improve the working conditions of the police.” On the same day, outraged Serbs moved to the crossings and began a peaceful protest, which was eventually dispersed with tear gas. The protests continue.

Brussels and Washington called on the parties to immediately end the escalation of the conflict and refrain from further unilateral steps.

The Republic of Kosovo is a partially recognized state on the Balkan Peninsula. It is mainly inhabited by ethnic Albanians, but there is also a Serb population. Serbia considers the autonomous province of Kosovo and Metohija – this is the name of the region in the Serbian constitution – as part of its territory, the local authorities declared independence in 2008.
