NATO declares its readiness to intervene in the situation with Kosovo

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that the International Security Forces in Kosovo (KFOR), which operate under NATO auspices, are ready to intervene in the situation in the region if stability is threatened.

“NATO’s Kosovo Force is ready to intervene if stability is threatened, based on the UN mandate,” Stoltenberg said.

He also called on the parties to a constructive dialogue mediated by the European Union, and according to the NATO Secretary General, differences should be resolved through diplomacy.

Earlier, the head of the Ministry of Interior of Kosovo, Jalal Sevichlija, said that the Yaringi and Prncak checkpoints between the unrecognized republic and central Serbia had been restored.

The situation in Kosovska Mitrovica worsened on July 31. The Kosovo police closed the checkpoint on the administrative line with Serbia, wanting to impose on the territory of the partially recognized republic the work of Serbian documents, and withdrew troops to the north of the region.

The Serbs began to erect barricades, and the Kosovar Albanians began to gather in the southern part of the city of Kosovska Mitrovica near the bridge that leads to the north side. There are also the international security forces of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (KFOR) on the border.
