EULEX: Freedom of movement has to be restored

PRISTINA – EULEX believes it is necessary to restore permanent and unconditional access to northern Kosovo in order for the mission to be able to carry out activities related to the rule of law, EULEX spokesperson Anne Blanksma told Tanjug on Monday.

Commenting on today's decision of the crisis headquarters of Kosovska Mitrovica that EULEX be denied passage in the northern part of the municipality until further notice, Blanksma said that EULEX' stance is unchanged and that permanent and unconditional access to northern Kosovo should be established.

Serbia's State Secretary at the Ministry of Kosovo-Metohija Oliver Ivanovic stated that the fear and anxiety which the Serbs in northern Kosovska Mitrovica fell are understandable, but that the local assembly should know that the decision on cooperation with EULEX is not made by the municipality, but by the future government.
