Serbia will ask NATO peacemakers to let it deploy Serbian army and police in Kosovo, though it believes there isn’t a likelihood of the request being accredited, President Aleksandar Vucic stated on Saturday.
Vucic advised a information convention in Belgrade that he would make the request in a letter to the commander of the NATO pressure FORK.
Tunic’s remarks got here after a spate of incidents between Kosovo authorities and Serb who represent a majority in northern areas of Albanian-majority Kosovo.
It might be the primary time Belgrade requested to deploy troops in Kosovo, below provisions of a U.N. Safety Council decision which ended a 1998-1999 struggle, wherein NATO interceded towards Serbia to guard Albanian-majority Kosovo.
The decision says Serbia can deploy as much as 1,000 army, police and customs officers to Orthodox Christian spiritual websites, areas with Serb majorities and border crossings, if such a deployment is accredited by KFOR’s commander.
On the time it was agreed, Kosovo was internationally recognised as a part of Serbia. With the West’s backing, Kosovo declared independence in 2008, a declaration not recognised by Serbia.
