The US, Great Britain, Germany and France have called on Serbia to give up its parallel structures. They also condemned the recent attacks against KFOR troops.
On the other hand, Serbia and Russia portrayed KFOR as the aggressor and northern Serbs as the victims.
Foreign Minister Hoxhaj said Serbia was blocking the young state and is organizing the violence against KFOR. “The current situation in northern Kosovo is complex. The situation threatens the functionality of Kosovo as a multiethnic state and this poses a serious threat to regional peace and security. The status quo has been tolerated since1999, despite being in violation of Resolution1244”, says Hoxhaj.
“Throughout this time, the Serbian Government has maintained, controlled and sponsored an entirely illegal system of structures. Security and police units, as well as paramilitary and defense structures, are still present and operating in this part of Kosovo,” Hoxhaj added.
US representative to the UN Di Carlo said that Serbian security structures were operating in northern Kosovo.“Whether intentional or not, the new UNMIK chief, Farid Zarif, in his first report, has sent ‘quite some water to Serbia’s mill’. Zarif prepared a very grim summary about the situation in Kosovo, not only in the north, but in other region sa swell” says Di Carlo.
The Security Council once again turned into an arena of disagreements over Kosovo, the US and the European Union has called for the removal of roadblocks.
