The EU High Representative, Josep Borrell, has responded to the Sunday attack against Kosovo Police with a strong statement.

He said, “I condemn in the strongest possible terms the hideous attack by an armed gang against Kosovo Police officers in Banjska/Banjskë in the north of Kosovo, which left one police officer dead and two injured.”

Regarding the facts surrounding the attack, Borrell stated that they “need to be established” and emphasized that the “responsible perpetrators must face justice.” He further emphasized that these attacks “must stop immediately” and expressed concern that more innocent lives are at risk in the ongoing hostilities in the vicinity of Banjska Monastery. Borrell noted that EULEX, as the second security responder, is on the ground and in close contact with the authorities and KFOR.

“The EU and its Member States repeatedly urge all actors to work to de-escalate the situation in the north of Kosovo,” urged Borrell.
