The Kosovo Police announced the opening of the two border posts at Jarenje and Brinjak to traffic.
The first vehicles were seen passing through the territory of Kosovo into Serbia and vice versa.
These border posts were opened to pedestrian and vehicle crossings after the removal of roadblocks in the northern part, which were closed by Serb groups on 10 December.
In the written statement issued by the Kosovo Police, it stated that the barriers had been lifted and two border crossing points, Jarenje and Brinjak, were opened to traffic this afternoon.
Police said police officers in the north of the country and at these two border points would continue to “perform their duties and legal powers in the interest of public order and constitutional order”.
The road closures came after ex-police officer Diane Pantek was detained by Kosovo institutions on December 10th.
Pantek was arrested on suspicion of organizing the attack on the offices of the Central Election Commission in North Mitrovica and Zubin Potok in early December.
