Establishing reciprocity with license plates and IDs brings back tensions on the Kosovo-Serbia border
The Kurti government has decided from tomorrow to issue a declaration document for every Serbian citizen who enters Kosovo and will also act with license plates. The same as Serbia acts with every citizen of Kosovo who enters Serbia.
At the Jarinja border, just like last year, some groups of Serbian citizens have blocked the road and this has made the situation tense.
"We will not take documents from people coming from Serbia to Kosovo, we will add a declaration sheet to them. So, they come with documents issued by Serbia, we don't take them, but we issue them a declaration form, because for 11 years Serbia has been acting the same as every citizen of our Republic when they cross the border and go to Serbia. So, from tomorrow they will have one more document", said today the prime minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti.
The new rules take effect from tomorrow, August 1.
