Warning Strife for the Trump Administration. Serbia & Kosovo. Egypt & Saudi Arabia. Gregory Copley, Defense & Foreign Affairs.

“… At an immediate, local level, the re-invigorated tensions between Serbia and Kosovo were stoked in December 2016 and January 2017 by a variety of factors. Balkan Insight website noted on January 24, 2017:

The meeting comes after months of escalating tension, which began in Decem-ber [2016] when Kosovo Serbs began building a concrete wall near the bridge that divides the town of Mitrovica into Albanian and Serbian sectors. Kosovo Albanian officials condemned its construction. The wall is still intact, however, and the planned re-opening of the bridge to ensure free movement be-tween the two zones, scheduled for January 20 [2017], has now been post-poned.

The arrest in France on a Serbian war crimes war- rant of Kosovo Liberation Ar-my commander and former Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj in January [2017] meanwhile sparked more protests by Kosovo Albanians who accused Serbia of con- ducting a vendetta.

Tensions between Priština and Belgrade soared even further on January 14 [2017] when Serbia sent a train painted in the colors of the Serbian flag and bearing the words “Kosovo is Serbian” in 21 languages from Belgrade to the northern, Serb- run part of the town of Mitrovica.

The Serbian authorities stopped the train in Raska, southern Serbia, just before the Kosovo border, after which Serbian Prime Minister Vucic dramatically ac-cused the Kosovo government of trying to blow up the railway line...."
