NATO Secretary General calls for wisdom in Kosovo vote

The NATO chief Friday urged “restraint” this weekend when tens of thousands of Kosovo Serbs with dual citizenship vote in the Serbian parliamentary and presidential elections.

“I strongly urge all leaders and all communities to show restraint during the voting process,” Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen said ahead of the Sunday ballot.

“In this critical period, it is important to avoid any unilateral actions or statements that can raise tensions,” he said, calling on both Pristina and Belgrade “to continue cooperating with the international community in order to ensure a calm and peaceful vote.”
