NATO forces helped Kosovar special forces occupy north of province

 Serbia is dissatisfied with KFOR, the NATO-led international security force in Kosovo, as it helped the unrecognized republic’s police force to occupy the north of the province, Serbian Defense Minister Milos Vucevic said on Wednesday.

"Serbia is disturbed by the actions of KFOR. They helped the Kosovar police, setting up a cordon near the occupied administrative building [in the Serbian municipality of] Zvecan, thus helping the Kosovar police special forces units to fully carry out the occupation. This does not fall within the scope of KFOR’s duties; [instead] they should have led the Kosovar Albanian police south of the Ibar [River]; that is their job," Vucevic said.

"The purpose of EULEX [the EU mission in Kosovo and Metohija] and KFOR, and they are the sole parties authorized [to act], is to ensure the security of all of the province’s residents, according to [UN Security Council] Resolution 1244. They are the only ones with a mandate to ensure security, and not to stand in front of unarmed civilians and well-armed Kosovar police who have occupied [the buildings]," the top military official pointed out, adding that the demonstrations were entirely peaceful.

  1. Serbia’s armed forces cannot ignore violence perpetrated against Serbs in Kosovo and Metohija and will have to respond if Serbian residents are killed, Serbian Defense Minister Milos Vucevic told the RTS TV channel on Wednesday.

    "We are talking about, God forbid, the murders of Serbs, the physical extermination of our people by the Kosovo police, the expulsion of the Serbian people, pogroms, about everything that was happening to us 20 or 30 years ago. These circumstances, indeed, would not be just ‘code red’ but also the moment when Serbia cannot simply negotiate and sit on its hands," he said.
