Stoltenberg: Tension between Kosovo and Serbia should be reduced

NATO’s Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg had a visit to Kosovo today where he held meetings with state leaders.

During his meeting with Kosovo’s PM, Isa Mustafa, Stoltenberg demanded for dialogue to continue and for tension between Pristina and Belgrade to be reduced.

“It is crucial for the agreements reached during the dialogue to be implemented. Today we discussed the need for all sides to continue their efforts to reduce tension. Dialogue is the way into the future for Kosovo and the region”, said Stoltenberg, offering guarantees that NATO’s troops will continue to remain in Kosovo.

Stoltenberg also encouraged political leaders to reach a compromise for the future of the integration of the country in the NATO and the European Union.

Meanwhile, PM Mustafa said that Kosovo will continue to be committed in building peace in cooperation with neighboring countries, while stressing that he welcomes NATO’s stay in Kosovo.

“We are making efforts to normalize relations with all countries of the region. We have excellent relations with Montenegro, while we have done excellent job in the fight against organized crime and corruption”, Mustafa said.  /
