The attack in the village of Banska on September 24 was unacceptable, the perpetrators must be punished.

This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at a joint press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in Belgrade, a BGNES reporter reported.

Regarding the terrorist attack in the village of Banska, Northern Kosovo, on September 24, which was carried out by a heavily armed Serbian group, Jens Stoltenberg stated: “In September, we witnessed violence. Such attacks are unacceptable, the perpetrators must be punished."

"For two decades, KFOR has guaranteed security in Kosovo for all communities. In May, KFOR soldiers suffered lifelong injuries during protests in Serb-majority municipalities," Stoltenberg recalled.

He noted the reinforcement of NATO forces in Kosovo in recent weeks. The Secretary General insisted on better communication between the Serbian army and KFOR, so that the escalation of tensions between Kosovo and Serbia can be avoided. Stoltenberg called again for the creation of the Association of Municipalities with a Serbian majority.
