The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, had a telephone conversation with the American national security adviser, Jake Sullivan, with whom he discussed the security situation in Kosovo after the armed attack in the north of the country.
Kurti said it was an encouraging conversation with the US national security adviser.
“I thanked him for the US support for Kosovo’s border security and asked for more help against Serbia’s war plans,” Kurti said.
Kurti said that he “convinced him of the continuous cooperation of the Kosovo police with KFOR and that Kosovo’s commitment to the protection of all citizens is unwavering.”
Regarding the situation in the north of Kosovo, after the attack by the Serbian group led by Milan Radoičić, US Secretary of State Antony Blinken had a telephone conversation with the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić.
State Department spokesman Matthew Miller said Secretary Blinken, during a call with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić, discussed “the importance of taking immediate steps to reduce tensions with Kosovo following the September 24 violence and killing of a police officer.
Blinken said that those responsible for the attacks and who are now in Serbia must be held accountable.
He reiterated that Serbia should accompany the urgent reduction of tension with the full implementation of its obligations from the agreement on the normalization of relations with Kosovo within the negotiations led by the European Union.
Meanwhile, US National Security Council Strategic Communications Coordinator John Kirby expressed Washington’s concern over what he called the “large deployment” of Serbian troops along the border with Kosovo.
“We are monitoring the large deployment of Serbian forces along the border with Kosovo. We call on Serbia to withdraw its forces from the border and continue to reduce tensions. We are monitoring these troops, but we cannot talk about the purpose of their grouping,” said Kirby, Klix.ba reports.
