NATO, Serbia reach agreement to end north Kosovo blockade

NATO-led mission in Kosovo (KFOR) and Serbian officials late Wednesday reached an accord on disputed border crossings in the north, but the ethnic-Albanian government in Pristina promptly rejected it.

At two disputed border crossings with Serbia, Brnjak and Jarinje, “the present system of control will continue unchanged until the middle of September,” KFOR said in a press release referring to its troops’ control over traffic and flow of goods.

That practically means the ongoing situation will be frozen until at least mid-September, which has prompted the Kosovo government to reject the deal as it did not foresee fulfilling the main goal of Pristina to set its police and customs officers at the two main border crossings to Serbia.
