Serbian head of state demands Pristina release “Innocent Serbs” Recently detained and withdrew their special forces from the Serb-majority northern part of Kosovo. Vučić also urged Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti to recall mayors of Albanian origin who the local Serbian community claims were brought into office as a result of sham elections in several cities.

Vucic also rejected an offer from top EU diplomat Josep Borrell to meet Kurti. According to the Serbian head of state, his country has made too many concessions and he is not ready to discuss any more.

He also lashed out at Western powers, which, according to Vucic, never really took Serbia seriously and have always supported the Kosovo government.

Serbia’s president on Wednesday accused Kosovo authorities of trying to provoke a war after the breakaway province closed its borders to all Serbian vehicles and detained several key Serbs.

Kurti’s measures came a day after Serbian security forces detained three Kosovar police officers. While Pristina insists they were abducted from Kosovo, Belgrade argues the three have entered Serbian territory.

European Commission also warns Kosovo “Economic and Political Consequences” Unless the Kurti government makes a meaningful effort to defuse the situation.

Violence erupted after Pristina held municipal elections in the north of the region, which were boycotted by the vast majority of local Serbs.

Still, Kosovo authorities are trying to install by force the four Albanian mayors who claim to have won the election.

While Brussels initially conceded the disputed result, it then called for a new vote and the withdrawal of Kosovo riot police from the region.
