President Serbian Aleksandar Vucic arrived at the General Staff of the Serbian Armed Forces due to the escalation on the border with unrecognized Kosovo. This is reported by the Kurir TV channel and the B92 portal.
According to the channel, Vučić intends to hold an emergency meeting on the situation at the border, and following the meeting, to make an official statement.
In addition, Kurir reported the sounds of gunfire in Kosovsko-Mitrovica (a city in the north of partially recognized Kosovo) . The Kosovo police have previously stated that some of the shots were aimed at police units.
The escalation on the Kosovo-Serbia border has been ongoing since the evening of July 31, when in southern Mitrovica, immediately about 200 Albanians gathered behind the bridge dividing the city. The Serbs, in turn, began to erect barricades.
After that, Vucic said that the country has never been in a more difficult and difficult situation than today. “The Pristina regime is trying, by presenting itself as a victim, to use the mood in the world,” — he said.
At the same time, the Serbian Ministry of Defense denied the widespread reports about its participation in the situation in the north of Kosovo and urged not to believe the disinformation. The ministry emphasized that “the Serbian army has not yet crossed the administrative line and in no way entered the territory of Kosovo and Metohija”

The authorities of Kosovo announced earlier that from next week, Serbian citizens who enter the territory of the republic will receive a temporary border crossing document and Serbian documents will be considered invalid. In Pristina, they said that this decision— a response to the actions of Belgrade, which does not recognize certificates issued by Kosovo.
Kosovo was previously an autonomous republic within Serbia, but in 2008 declared its independence. It was recognized by most EU countries and more than a hundred countries — UN members. Russia, China, Iran, Serbia and a number of other countries have not recognized Kosovo as a separate state.
