KFOR denies that it banned some Pristina officials from visiting the north


Rumours circulating on social media alleging that KFOR banned some Kosovo officials from travelling to north Kosovo are unfounded, they said in a statement last night.

Their reaction arrived after the journalist Fitim Ceku shared these allegations on „X“.

Ceku revealed that he came into possession of documentation, that is, a list with the names of politicians in Pristina to whom KFOR allegedly issued this ban.

“Exclusive: NATO bans Vetevendosje deputies and some ministers from entering the north of Kosovo,” Ceku wrote, noting that the media should reach out to KFOR and the Kosovo police for more information.

„Do not allow access“ – reads the top of the document, with the names and surnames of the politicians listed below.

KoSSev contacted the mission to confirm the authenticity of the list and Ceku’s allegations.

“The NATO-led KFOR mission would like to clarify that rumours circulating on social media alleging that KFOR is banning some Kosovar officials from travelling to northern Kosovo are unfounded,” KFOR announced last night.

They added that KFOR never interferes with the freedom of movement of individuals across Kosovo.

“We continue to provide a safe and secure environment for all communities living in Kosovo, in accordance with our UN mandate, at all times and impartially.”

KFOR is the third security responder, after the Kosovo Police and the EU Rule of Law (EULEX) mission.

They underscored that they work in “close coordination” with them.

“We continue to cooperate with the Institutions in Kosovo on a daily basis.”
