Major roads in Northern Kosovo remain blocked

All major roads in northern Kosovo remain blocked but the situation remains calm following the deployment of EU police and Kosovo customs officials to border crossings with Serbia last Friday.

Serbs in northern Kosovo have strengthened barricades on major roads and are reportedly refusing to remove them until Kosovo police and customs officers withdraw from two checkpoints.

A number of Kosovo’s customs officers, along with EULEX, arrived at the two checkpoints in Jarinje and Brnjak on Friday by helicopter as part of a scheduled and publicised agreement with the EU rule-of-law mission and NATO peacekeeping troops.
