The crisis at the border between Kosovo and Serbia has emerged because Serbia refuses to accept that another state begins at the Jarinje and Brnjak crossings, Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti said at a Sept. 29 press conference, adding that the Serbs in Kosovo are cooperative when Pristina's government measures are concerned.

Kurti was quoted as saying by the Kossev.info portal that he didn't want special forces to be at the two border crossings, but that he also had to take steps as long as the roads were blocked, and "a Serbian minister comes to Jarinje with tanks and the Russian ambassador in his tow."

The Kosovo PM has accused Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic of speaking the language of the 1990s, suggesting to him again in what way the new situation in the north of Kosovo should be tackled: "Let us both, Kosovo and Serbia, take off temporary plates and travel with regular ones."

Kurti underlined that the Serbs in Kosovo were very cooperative when measures taken by the government in Pristina were concerned. "Yet you have that one person in Serbia, who is the president of the state though, using the language of the 1990s. You can't come to the border with T-72 tanks, blow up a car registration center in Zubin Potok and, on top of that, bring the Russian ambassador with you," Kurti said.
