KFOR ready for every scenario, commanders saySource: Tanjug
PRIZREN -- KFOR has taken all measures in order to preserve peace and order and holding of the Serbian elections on May 6 should not destabilize the situation.
“KFOR Commander Erhard Drews has taken all necessary measures to keep the situation from escalating. We need to consider the legitimate rights of the Serbs in the north, but at the same time we need to respect the law which bans the holding of local elections, due to the fact Kosovo is a sovereign country,” said German contingent Commander Bernd Holthusen, Priština-based Albanian language daily Koha Ditore has reported.
He is convinced the elections will be peaceful and without incidents because KFOR has a clear task and is ready to carry it out with maximum effort.
In U.S. contingent Commander Jeffrey Layton’s opinion, the situation in the province is peaceful but fragile.
