EULEX Head of Mission, Xavier Bout de Marnhac, earlier today visited the Kosovo Police stations in Ferizaj/Uroševac, Lipjan/Lipljan ,Fushë Kosovë/Kosovo Polje and Obiliq/Obilic where he met with station commanders and EULEX police monitors.
The station commanders briefed Head of Mission on the operational plans for the day and the security situation in relation to the ongoing elections. Head of Mission was very pleased to hear that no security related incidents had been recorded so far in those areas he visited.
“For the Kosovo Police all over Kosovo it’s important to show to everyone that they’re able to mobilize on a day like this and I’m very glad that EULEX is here to support you.” Head of Mission said. “It’s not only important to show to the people of Kosovo, but also to the whole world, that Kosovo Police is in charge.”
The station commanders all expressed gratitude to EULEX for the support provided to the Kosovo Police.
EULEX engaged more than 500 police officers today to support the Kosovo Police in carrying out their tasks in securing the elections.
