A KFOR convoy that started off for two checkpoints in northern Kosovo, has returned to its base in Novo Selo and the mission has been put on hold until an Oct. 19 meeting of Kosovo Serb municipal leaders in the north.

A KFOR convoy that started off for two checkpoints in northern Kosovo, has returned to its base in Novo Selo and the mission has been put on hold until an Oct. 19 meeting of Kosovo Serb municipal leaders in the north.

The deal was reached between KFOR and local officials, led by Zubin Potok municipal president Slavisa Ristic, while the talks took place near the village of Zupce, where the convoy was forced to a stop by a Serb barricade.

"We will discuss KFOR's request to communicate with its soldiers at the checkpoints during the session, among other things. Their request is not that the barricades be removed but that supplies for the soldiers proceed freely," he said.

A meeting of municipal representatives from Kosovksa Mitrovica, Zvecan, Zubin Potok and Leposavic will be held in Zubin Potok on Oct. 19. The officials will acquaint KFOR representatives with their conclusions at 2 p.m.

KFOR Commander Gen. Erhard Drews said on Oct. 18 that he was disappointed by the Serb decision not to remove the barricades adding that "citizens in the north have not passed the test." An earlier statement said that "based on the results of the supply mission, KFOR will act accordingly" and that the objective had been "to test the freedom of movement in accordance with the request for the removal of the barricades."
