Southern Kosovska Mitrovica mayor warns of war Izvor: N1

The Mayor of the southern, mainly Albanian, half of Mitrovica has warned of war if anything is done to the town in a possible Kosovo-Serbia agreement.

Speaking at a commemoration to mark the murder of nine Albanians in Mitrovica north 19 years ago, Bahtiri warned that a possible agreement should not touch the town. Bahtiri launched an initiative to merge the two halves of the town which has been divided into a Serb north and Albanian south which the Kosovo government said is against the law and is opposed by the Serbs.  

Serb List party leader Goran Rakic said the threat of war has been received seriously and with the greatest concern by the Kosovo Serbs.  

Rakic said he expects KFOR and EULEX to react to Bahtiri’s statement. “Dangerous threats to peace like this at a moment of high tension can destroy the fragile stability which we, as representatives of the Serb people, have built in impossible conditions,” he said in a statement adding that whoever “touches our homes, our northern Kosovska Mitrovica, will get an adequate response”.
