Mayors of Serb municipalities in northern Kosovo have offered KFOR a compromise solution for the current problem regarding the barricades, said reports.
Kosovska Mitrovica Mayor Krstimir Pantić said the convoys of the NATO troops were offered to be able to “periodically pass through the municipalities in the north, but this does not mean they will have full freedom of movement”.
KFOR previously announced it would remove the barricades that prevent them from supplying their troops at the Jarinje and Brnjak administrative line checkpoints.
Awaiting further developments, Serbs have gathered in Zupče, Leposavić, Rudare and the main bridge on the Ibar River, separating the southern, ethnic Albanian, and northern, mostly Serb parts of Kosovska Mitrovica. There are about 2,000 people this morning gathered in that town.
Pantić said that the citizens would defend their homes “with their bodies”.
“They are ready to solve all misunderstandings only through compromise,” he added.
