German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock said in Kyiv on Monday that Serbia should reduce its troops number along the border with Kosovo.

“There should be no more tension between Serbia and Kosovo,” she said after an informal meeting of European Union Foreign Ministers in the capital of Ukraine.

She added that the EU Foreign Ministers appealed for Serbia to urgently withdraw its forces.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on Monday that Serbian troop numbers in the Ground Safety Zone along the border with Kosovo were much lower than allowed under an agreement with NATO.
