May 29, 2023

NATO condemned the violence in the north of partially recognized Kosovo on Monday and attacks on NATO peacekeeping forces KFOR.

This is stated in a NATO statement.

"NATO strongly condemns the unprovoked attacks on KFOR troops in northern Kosovo, which have left several of them injured. Such attacks are completely unacceptable. The violence must stop immediately," the statement said.


NATO called on all parties to refrain from actions that further inflame tensions and to engage in dialogue.

"KFOR will take all necessary measures to maintain a safe and secure environment and will continue to act impartially, in accordance with its mandate under UN Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999," the statement said.
