Members of the Kosovo Parliament will meet today in a special session to address the situation in the country’s north. The session is scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m.

The situation in the northern municipalities has been severe since Friday, May 26, when elected mayors were compelled to enter their offices with the support of the Kosovo Police.

Six Kosovo police officers and 30 KFOR soldiers have been hurt as a result of the violent rallies, while Serbs have also attacked the Kosovo Police and media.

The US has criticized Kosovo for raising tensions with Serbia, and the country’s participation in the NATO military exercise “Defender 23” was canceled when Pristina refused to withdraw mayors and police forces from the country’s north.

On the other hand, on Thursday, U.S. Ambassador Jeffrey Hovenier claimed that they had a fruitful discussion with Prime Minister Albin Kurti and reviewed the core agreement with Serbia, indicating a possible breakthrough in the issue.

Meanwhile, the executive’s head indicated that they are devoted to stabilizing the situation in the country’s north.
