“I confirmed Serbia’s views on recent events in Kosovo and requested that KFOR take over all security matters in northern Kosovo instead of Kurti’s police,” Vucic wrote in an Instagram post after his meeting with the ambassadors.
Vucic said he also asked why the Kosovo police refused to allow EULEX (the EU mission in Kosovo, ed.) to be present in the operation in northern Kosovo.
The meeting was necessitated by the killing of a Kosovo police sergeant by several members of a Kosovo Serb armed group. Pristina announced that several of the wounded members of the “terrorist group” had been admitted to Belgrade for treatment.
