UK Embassy: Situation in Kosovo is calm

Serb media outlets have reported that the UK has advised its citizens against traveling to the North of Kosovo, while the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic has declared that he is not scared of the warnings coming from London. On its part, the UK embassy has dismissed such reports.

The UK embassy to Kosovo has reacted by saying that this advice only applied to several northern municipalities.

“Various news outlets have recently reported (without first checking with the British Embassy) that the UK has advised its citizens not to travel to Kosovo. This is not true. We have advised against all but essential travel to the northern municipalities for several years, due to a number of recent violent incidents linked to organised crime in Northern Kosovo, and the ongoing risk that these structures pose. We keep this and the rest of our travel advice under constant review and issue regular updates”, the British embassy said. /ibna/
