The United States and the European Union called on both Kosovo and Serbia to “exercise restraint”, amid escalating tensions in northern Kosovo.

A joint statement urged Pristina and Belgrade to refrain from provocation and threats between them.

“We call on each party to exercise the highest degree of restraint, act immediately to de-escalate without conditions, and refrain from provocation and threats,” the statement said.

Kosovo police closed the most important border crossing to Serbia, after setting up barriers on the Serbian side of it.
