The government condemned the blockade of streets in the north of Kosovo and the firing of shots through armed persons, it said in a message from Pristina. At the same time, the Serbian leadership was held responsible for "aggressive actions" on Sunday.

Actually, the Kosovar authorities no longer wanted to recognize Serbian personal documents from this Monday. Serbs with such papers should have had a temporary document on the border for a stay in Kosovo. It is a measure of mutuality, since Serbia from Kosovars require the same thing when entering, Kurti explained on Sunday. In addition, new rules for vehicle license plates should apply.

"at the boiling point"

The situation in Kosovo had been for the Serbs living there and "never so complex" for Serbia, said Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic. The atmosphere is "at the boiling point".

Background of the dispute: The Kosovo, which was largely inhabited by Albanians today, declared itself independent of Serbia in 2008. The government in Belgrade considers Kosovo to continue to be a renegade province.
