Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti stated that if NATO Peacekeeping Force in Kosovo does not remove the barricades, the Kosovo Police will remove the barricades.
In an interview with the Bosnian media, Kurti recalled that the Serbs had set up roadblocks in the north on the orders of Belgrade and its leaders.
“They are not creative. They know nothing but to repeat the mistakes they made in the 1990s when they were building barricades in Bosnia and Croatia. And somehow they just know how to repeat what they say. I think they will fail,” Kurti noted that there are more local police in the north of the country Now more than before.
Noting that KFOR had asked them for some time to remove the barricades, therefore there was a delay in removing the barricades in order to open the roads and ensure freedom of movement, “If KFOR cannot remove the barricades, we will have to do it. Because the barricades are mainly blocking Serbs in the north, this situation is unconstitutional and illegal and it is a kind of pressure on the government, but above all it is against freedom of movement.
Kurti stated that the KFOR has prided itself on ensuring peace, security and freedom of movement in Kosovo for the past 23 years, so now it needs to prove itself in action, adding: “I think it’s time for KFOR to prove itself. If they don’t prove themselves, we will have to.” Unfortunately to deal with those roadblocks. I don’t want to get to that point.”
