France on Thursday condemned an attack in the troubled northern area of Kosovo earlier in the day in which a policeman from the European Union “Eulex” mission was killed.
The area of the incident is a tinderbox where Kosovars and Serbs have frequently clashed in their joint-border region.
Kosovo obtained independence from Serbia several years ago after a bloody struggle and with the help of NATO intervention against Serb forces who were severely repressing civilians in Kosovo and committing war crimes and crimes against humanity.
“France condemns the attack perpetrated this morning in northern Kosovo against the members of the European mission,” the French Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“France counts on all the parties present to shed all light on this attack and bring the perpetrators to justice,” the official statement said.
