KFOR: No Movement of Kosovo Security Forces Toward North

The KFOR mission confirmed on Oct. 2 the deployment of soldiers to the Jarinje and Brnjak administrative line crossings in line with an agreement between Belgrade and Pristina.

KFOR announced that in the last few days members of the international peacekeeping force in Kosovo had been patrolling roads toward the Jarinje and Brnjak crossings -- roads where Serbs erected roadblocks in response to Pristina's announcement that Serbian license plates would be removed.

In the next two weeks, KFOR will be present in the area, in accordance with the agreement and its mandate resulting from the 1999 Resolution 1244 of the U.N. Security Council in order to provide a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement for all communities living in Kosovo, the statement said.

The removal of barricades and withdrawal of Kosovo special forces were concluded at 4 p.m. on Oct. 2, and no members of the ROSU special police unit remain in the area while the barricades at Jarinje and Brnjak were removed early on Oct. 3 and traffic was only open toward Serbia proper. Traffic from Serbia proper to northern Kosovo is to be re-established at 8 a.m. on Oct. 4, when a regime of stickers to cover certain parts of license plates will come into force.
