Somewhat after 13:00 CET, Vulin was halted in the southern part of Kosovska Mitrovica, from where his car was accompanied by two police vehicles to the Merdare administrative crossing.
As the reason for this move, the police stated that Vulin's visit to the northern part of Kosovska Mitrovica had not been previously announced.
Earlier on Friday, Vulin stopped his visit to the south of Kosovo, following the incident in the territory of the municipality of Zubin Potok, where unidentified perpetrators shot at vehicles belonging to EULEX and the Kosovo police.
From Prizren, Vulin, instead of going to the municipality of Gora, headed for the north of Kosovo, where he should have met with representatives of local Serbs in Kosovska Mitrovica.
On behalf of the Serbian government, Vulin strongly condemned the incident in the north of Kosovo, and called on the international community to take all measures to bring perpetrators to justice.
