BELGRADE – Norwegian FM Børge Brende has urged Kosovo authorities to “refrain from transformation of the Kosovo Security Force into an armed force without a constitutional change and an inclusive political process,” Tanjug reports.
“Regional stability and cooperation is a prerequisite for deeper integration. Normalisation of the relations with Serbia will have our full support,” Brende said in a statement published on the website of the Norwegian embassy in Belgrade.

“Norway will remain a partner in Kosovo´s efforts for reforms and Euro-Atlantic integration,” he said.
