The Prime Ministers of Croatia and Albania called on the European Union to take action against Serbia over events in Kosovo

The Prime Ministers of Croatia and Albania, Andrej Plenkovic and Edi Rama, called on the European Union to take action against Serbia in the wake of recent rising tensions between Belgrade and Pristina.

On September 24, in the village of Bangska in northern Kosovo, a shootout broke out between Kosovo forces and ethnic Serbs who had barricaded themselves in a local monastery. Late at night, Kosovo police were able to control the situation after an exchange of gunfire in which three attackers and a policeman were killed.

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama said during a meeting in Zagreb with his Croatian counterpart Andrej Plenkovic: “We are dealing with the murder of a policeman, and we see attempts to make the perpetrators of this crime heroes.”

The Prime Minister of Croatia wants to intervene against Serbia

Two days after the incident, a day of mourning was declared in Serbia after the killing of the three attackers. The Kosovo authorities accused Serbia of preparing to annex the northern part of the country, which is inhabited by a majority of Kosovo Serbs. The Serbian side denied these accusations.

Plenkovic noted that Serbia, by declaring mourning for the attackers, “to some extent acknowledged its involvement in the incident.” – The Prime Minister of Croatia said that mourning terrorists is unacceptable and cannot remain without a response.
