Belgrade newspaper claims humanitarian catastrophe looming in north Kosovo Izvor: N1

The four Serb-majority municipalities in northern Kosovo are close to a humanitarian catastrophe with dwindling supplies of food, Belgrade daily Politika said on Tuesday.

The newspaper said that some 400 grocery store owners are planning to shut their shops because their shelves are empty. They said they have not been getting milk and milk products, cooking oil, sugar and salt.  

Politika was told by Rados Petrovic, the head of a business people’s association, that flour stocks have been used up which he said means that there will no bread in shops on Wednesday.  

Mitrovica South Mayor Agim Bahtiri said he would not allow anyone from Serbia to create a humanitarian crisis in the north of Kosovo. He said his municipal administration and other Kosovo institutions would prevent Serbia’s attempts to create a humanitarian catastrophe by emptying the shops and pharmacies of basic foodstuffs and medication, the Telegrafi newspaper quoted him as saying.

 The newspaper said that inspectors from Pristina have stepped up their spot-checks in the north of Kosovo.  

Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj said last week that official Belgrade is planning to create a humanitarian catastrophe in the north of Kosovo by withholding goods.
