WH calls on Serbia to withdraw forces from Kosovo border

White House National Security Council Coordinator for Strategic Communications John Kirby said on Friday that Serbia is deepening destabilization with its recent army deployment along the border of self-proclaimed Kosovo and urged Serbian authorities to withdraw military forces. He also disclosed that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken spoke with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic to express US concern over the latest tensions in the region.

Meanwhile, NATO reported today that it decided to enhance its presence in Kosovo and to deploy additional forces "to address the current situation." "We stand ready to make further adjustments to KFOR's [Kosovo Force] posture as required," NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in a statement.

Last weekend, a group of about 30 armed Serbs clashed with Kosovo police, which left one Kosovo policeman and at least three Serbian civilians dead and several injured. Milan Radoicic, vice president of the Serb List, a minority political party in the region, took responsibility for the incident.
