Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic talked to NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg on Sunday about what the foreign official called a concerning situation in Kosovo. Vucic told him that Serbia in no way violated the Brussels agreement or Resolution 1244, nor did it jeopardise the peace.
According to the President’s office, he told Stoltenberg in a phone conversation that for seven days everyone has been “loudly silent” about what he called “a full occupation of the north of Kosovo that is carried out by Pristina,” but that now everyone is “suddenly concerned when they see Serbia’s helicopters and planes in central Serbia.”
Vucic thanked Stoltenberg for being fair and hearing Serbia’s side of the story, asking which international regulation Serbia breached, the President’s office said.
Stoltenberg tweeted after the talks with Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti it is necessary for both Belgrade and Pristina to show restraint and return to dialogue.
I spoke to @avucic of #Serbia & @albinkurti of #Kosovo about the need to de-escalate in the north of Kosovo. It's vital both Belgrade & Pristina show restraint & return to dialogue. @NATO_KFOR’s mandate remains to ensure a safe & secure environment & freedom of movement for all.
