Mayor of North Mitrovica Goran Rakić ordered today the suspension of construction works on and around the bridge in this city, and asked the international and local security authorities to ensure the security of citizens.
Rakić said that the reason behind was a series of serious incidents in the city and that he asks the representatives of the EU to comply with the Brussels agreement and above all to ensure the safety to citizens.
He called on KFOR to step up its presence in North Mitrovica, and Kosovo police to tighten control of persons in this city, especially in mixed environments.
“The latest incidents that occurred in Kosovska Mitrovica deserve any kind of conviction. Those responsible must be found and punished most severely,” said Rakić.
