KFOR is ready to call reserve forces and intervene in the event of a worsening of the security situation, as the deadline for re-registration of vehicles approaches, the first deputy commander of the NATO mission in the province, Brigadier General Luka Piperni, said today in Pristina.
Piperni told reporters at the KFOR headquarters in Pristina that the situation is now calm, but sensitive, and that NATO cannot rule out new tensions or, as Reuters reports, violence in the north of the province as October 31 approaches.
– If the situation worsens, we are ready to intervene, we are ready to find ourselves between the demonstrators and the security organizations – Piperni told reporters, talking about, as reported by Reuters, the approaching deadline for vehicle re-registration in Kosovo.
He said that KFOR has “enough soldiers to deal with the situation” and that “with that number of members” it can “end any escalation of tension”.
– We are alert and ready to act… if we have an increase in tensions, but we can also bring reserve forces… which we can call in a short time – pointed out Brigadier General Piperni.
