NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg has called on Kosovo to tone down tensions with Serbia, two days after clashes between Kosovan police and protesters
who are opposed to Albanian mayors taking office in ethnic Serbian areas. The transatlantic military alliance’s secretary-general said he had spoken
to European Union foreign policy Chief Josep Borrell about Kosovo. He added that Pristina and Belgrade must engage in the EU-led dialogue.
Serbs, who form the majority of the population in Kosovo’s northern region, do not accept its 2008 declaration of independence from Serbia and
still see Belgrade as their capital more than two decades after the war ended in 1999.
