New York, 22 September – President Borut Pahor, who is in New York for the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, held several bilateral meetings on Tuesday, including with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan to discuss cooperation, Afghanistan and migrations. He also attended an event marking 30 years of Slovenia’s independence.
Namely, Pristina's interim authorities decided to implement reciprocal measures and demand the change of license plates from Serbia, as Kosovo's drivers had to do when crossing the border, replacing them with temporary Kosovo ones. This increased tensions in the north and caused concern among the locals.
He called for an immediate calming of tensions.
"It's important to reduce tensions, restore a peaceful atmosphere & allow for freedom of movement", Lajcak said on Twitter.
Lajcak, who is visiting Belgrade, emphasizes that he talked about the situation in the north of Kosovo and Metohija with the ambassadors of the European Union.
Addressing the public, President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vui, who chaired that session, said that he received a proposal for resolving the situation at Jarinje and Brnjak crossings yesterday, but that he rejected that proposal, for which he received the consent of the National Security Council.
Three key conclusions:
The Council is chaired by the President of the Republic, Aleksandar Vui.
The session is attended by Ministers Nebojsa Stefanovic, Aleksandar Vulin, as well as the Chief of the General Staff of the Serbian Army Milan Mojsilovic and the Director of the BIA Bratislav Gasic.

Namely, the authorities in Pristina started implementing reciprocal measures on Monday, and the license plates are being removed from Serbian vehicles and temporary ones are being installed. This caused dissatisfaction of the citizens of Serbia, and some of them spent the night at the crossings in protest.
