BELGRADE, Serbia (AP) — Serbia’s president says NATO-led peacekeepers in Kosovo have rejected its demand for Serbian security forces be allowed to return to the breakaway province amid ongoing tensions. President Aleksandar Vucic said on Sunday that KFOR peacekeepers said in their response that there is no need for the return of Serbian forces. KFOR deployed in Kosovo in 1999 after the NATO alliance’s bombing forced the Serbian army and police out of the territory. Serbia made its demand in mid-December when tensions in Kosovo soared over the arrest of an ethnic Serb former police officer that led to roadblocks in the north of the country where ethnic Serbs mostly live.
