QUIET NIGHT IN KOSOVO


29.07.2011. / Tanjug

Stefanovic and Bogdanovic meet KFOR commander again

Thursday night was quiet in northern Kosovo, with Serbs spending it at the roadblocks they had set up in several locations on roads leading to administrative crossings with Serbia.

NATO's Kosovo Force (KFOR) has been in control of the Jarinje and Brnjak crossings since Thursday evening. Kosovo police and customs officers are also present at Brnjak.

The two biggest roadblocks are in Rudare, Zvecan municipality, and Zupce, Zubin Potok.

Serbia's Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanovic and chief negotiator Borislav Stefanovic will continue their talks with KFOR Commander Erhard Buehler about the situation caused by Kosovo special police's attempt to seize Jarinje and Brnjak.

The Thursday negotiations failed, with NATO declaring the two posts as off-limits military zones and threatening the use of deadly force in case of an attack.

Solution can only be reached through talks, says Bogdanovic

Minister for Kosovo and Metohija Goran Bogdanovic cautioned Friday that the rising tensions in northern Kosovo could trigger serious clashes, and pointed out that negotiations are the only way out.

"I expect that a new meeting will be held today with KFOR commander General Erhard Buehler, and that we will resolve the situation by way of agreement. It is in everybody's interest that agreement is reached, because the tensions threaten to escalate into serious clashes," Bogdanovic told Tanjug.

He underlined that it is difficult to control situations such as this one. This is why representatives of the Serbian government insist on an agreement and solution, he added.

Talks should be continued with KFOR in order to find a solution, Bogdanovic stressed.

He said he understands the demands of some that the negotiations be suspended, but underscored that he does not see any other way in which the current situation could be resolved.

Bogdanovic and Head of the Belgrade team in the talks with Pristina Borislav Stefanovic are supposed to meet with General Buehler during the day and try to find a way out of the situation, following the attempt of Kosovo special police unit ROSU to assume control over the administrative crossings of Jarinje and Brnjak.

Cafes open past 3 p.m. again

The Kosovska Mitrovica municipal council revoked Friday its decision to limit the working hours of commercial establishments to 3 p.m..

The limitation was introduced two days ago because of the situation caused by the Kosovo police's attempt to seize two administrative crossings with Serbia in northern Kosovo.

From now on, comercial establishments can be open from 7 a.m. until midnight.
