Kosovo Foreign Minister Donika Gervalla-Schwarz called the international community to impose sanctions against Serbia and threaten to freeze its EU accession talks unless Belgrade hands over the men involved in the Banjska incident, warning that a new war could break out if Belgrade’s activities are tolerated.

Plenkovic said that the incident cannot go unanswered and added that Belgrade’s decision to declare a day of mourning for the dead in the incident. He added that the EU Special Representative will propose measures once the investigation is completed.

Rama said that the EU should impose measures because of the violence by what he called Serb paramilitaries in the north of Kosovo and Belgrade’s glorification of them. He said that the aggression by the paramilitaries is as concerning as Belgrade’s reaction.
