EULEX chief Yves de Kermabon says he believes cooperation with Belgrade, “even if minimal”, is necessary. This, the head of the EU mission in Kosovo told AFP, concerns solving “cross-border issues”.
Kermabon also stated that people, drug, oil and cigarette trafficking activities have intensified, “especially in northern Kosovo, which is majority Serb-inhabited”.
He also reminded that on September 11, EULEX and Belgrade signed a cooperation protocol.
“If we wish to see progress in northern Kosovo, this has to be done in coordination with Serbian authorities,” Kermabon was quoted as saying.
