NATO to deploy extra 700 troops to Kosovo as tensions with ethnic Serbs rise

NATO will deploy an extra 700 troops to Kosovo amid rising tensions with ethnic Serbs.

An additional battalion of reserve forces have also been put on high alert to be deployed if needed, NATO Secretary General has said.

“Attacks in Kosovo must stop. NATO troops will take all necessary actions to maintain a safe and secure environment for all citizens in Kosovo”, - added Jens Stoltenberg.

He urged both sides to take steps to de-escalate, refrain from “further irresponsible behavior”, and to return to EU-backed talks on improving relations.
