Kosovo’s Prime Minister, Albin Kurti, has announced that he will discuss the issue of barricades in the north with the KFOR commander after Christmas.
Kurti pointed out that the current situation in the north could not be tolerated, and added that the International Security Force in Kosovo asked for some time and gave the Kosovo government the appropriate time, but the barriers erected by the Serbs in the north prevented freedom of movement.
“Kfur asked for time, and we gave it time. Despite this, it has been two weeks since 11 roadblocks were erected in the north, and these barriers impede freedom of movement. KFOR has always been committed to providing a calm and secure environment for freedom of movement. Freedom of movement was a core value that I emphasized Kosovo power in all the post-war years. That’s why we gave KFOR time. Corti pointed out that there is no freedom of movement, and that men in military uniform and armed men stand guard at the barriers that prevent this.
Stating that he will meet with the KFOR commander to discuss the issue after Christmas, Prime Minister Kurti said, “This situation cannot be tolerated. I think everything will become clear and we will respond to it in the meeting we plan to hold after the New Year with the KFOR commander.”
Kurti also stated that he would announce the name of Kosovo’s new health minister within the next week, and called on citizens, especially businesses, to save electricity.
