Northern Kosovo mayors and the head of the Kosovska Mitrovica District late on Thursday urged citizens not to get Kosovo license plates and personal documents.

Northern Kosovo mayors and the head of the Kosovska Mitrovica District late on Thursday urged citizens not to get Kosovo license plates and personal documents.

Appearing on the Zvecan-based Most television, they expressed expectation KFOR will drop the plan to close alternative routes in northern Kosovo, but warned that if the mission proceeds, there will be new protests and roadblocks.

They expressed expectation that the coming election in Serbia will encompass Kosovo, because not holding elections would signal the beginning of the end for Serbian institutions in the province. They also said that while they have differing views on some issues, the unity among them has not been compromised.

Leposavic Mayor Branko Ninic said people in northern Kosovo can fight to keep this territory with the help of the state of Serbia, in harmony and unity.

Zubin Potok Mayor Slavisa Ristic said the agreements which Belgrade and Pristina reached in Brussels have made life more difficult for Serbs in Kosovo, especially the freedom of movement deal which requires Serbs to change their citizenship to Kosovar.

He said people are worried about EULEX's announcement that the implementation of the Brussels agreement will start, adding Belgrade and Pristina agreed on the license plates and documents switch.

"Stefanovic had two interpretations, one for the Serbian public, and another for the people in northern Kosovo, whom he tried to persuade that this does not apply to them. This is not written in the agreement and EULEX will go by that," Ristic said.

Head of the Kosovska Mitrovica District Radenko Nedeljkovic said representatives of international missions in Kosovo are responsible for the deteriorated security situation in the north.

"KFOR has announced it will soon close alternative routes in northern Kosovo and this confirms that, together with EULEX, they have put themselves at the service of Pristina and are helping to integrate the north into Kosovo institutions through violent means," Nedeljkovic said.

Kosovska Mitrovica Mayor Krstimir Pantic called on all subjects to get actively involved in the fight for the survival of Serbs and Serbia in Kosovo, while Zvecan Mayor Dragisa Milovic reminded about the citizen petition asking that the EULEX mission leave the province because it is not status neutral.
