U.S.: Conditions not in place at this time for elections in the north

United States Ambassador to Kosova, Jeffrey Hovenier, took to Twitter today to say that “the United States condemns those who employed violence during yesterday’s incidents in northern Kosovo.

Resorting to violence and intimidation, including the use of an explosive device, and endangering lives is never an appropriate method of protest, under any circumstances”. 

“The United States is concerned that conditions are not in place at this time for elections to be held later this month in northern Kosovo. The safety and security of all Kosovan citizens should be the highest priority. We look for all involved to exercise restraint,” he tweeted.
