The American ambassador meets with Osmani: The group that attacked the police in the north was trained
The United States Ambassador to Kosovo, Jeff Hovenier, said that there are still unknowns regarding the September 24 attack on the Kosovo Police, but emphasized that the group that attacked the police did not consist of citizens who spontaneously gathered "to express the concerns of theirs".
"We are still working to understand how and who is responsible and why. But I mean, you've seen the footage of the military equipment and the plans that were developed. This was not a group of citizens who spontaneously came together to voice their concerns.
This was a trained and organized group. This implies that there is some sort of structure behind them, given the training and equipment. We want this event to be clarified and they are held responsible", said Hovenier to the journalists, after meeting with the President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani on September 26.
The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, had stated on September 24 that the gunmen were local Serbs of Kosovo, "who could no longer suffer the terror of [Kosovo Prime Minister, Albin] Kurt".
Earlier this year, Kosovo and Serbia reached the Agreement towards the normalization of relations and the Annex for its implementation./rel
