NATO concerned over seized weapons

NATO officials are "concerned over the latest developments in the Macedonian-Kosovo border zone" where large weapons cache was discovered after Macedonian police engaged an ethnic Albanian gang from Kosovo, said reports from Pristina.

NATO officials are "concerned over the latest developments in the Macedonian-Kosovo border zone" where large weapons cache was discovered after Macedonian police engaged an ethnic Albanian gang from Kosovo, said reports from Pristina.

Such actions could lead to a destabilization of FYRMacedonia, stated Allied Joint Force Command Naples Commander U.S. Admiral Mark Fitzgerald.

"The amount of weapons which was discovered is very large and it represents a great concern for us," he said in Pristina this Wednesday.

"Such actions could destabilize countries like Macedonia, so it's obvious that we're concerned," he stated.

Fitzgerald has described the action of Kosovo authorities to remove the mobile phone transmitters of Serbian companies as frustrating, and he invited the involved sides to find a peaceful solution.

Fitzgerald said this in Pristina after a meeting with KFOR Commander Markus Bentler, who warned that KFOR will not tolerate any operation that jeopardizes the return of displaced persons and the safety of all Kosovo citizens.

The interim Kosovo authorities disabled a number of base stations owned by two Serbian cell phone carriers in Kosovo two weeks ago, leaving over 100,000 Serbs without phone lines.

Fitzgerald said that KFOR will fully support EULEX and the Kosovo police in the fight against organized crime and corruption and also called on the Kosovo authorities to increase transparency in carrying out operations.

He said that EULEX has jurisdiction over fighting organized crime and corruption, but that KFOR will act if asked to do so.

Fitzgerald commended EULEX's recent operations in fighting organized crime and expressed support for its continuing work on implementing laws and the rule of law.

He said does not want to meddle in the work of Kosovo institutions, but asked the government for more transparency in its decision making.
