Serbian Interior Minister Nebojsa Stefanovic said on Friday that the Serbian authorities are talking to every possible country about Kosovo’s request to join Interpol. He told the pro-government TV Pink that the aim of those contacts was to prevent the “politicization” of the international police organization whose members voted not to grant membership to Kosovo in 2018. “Pristina should not wait to join Interpol in order to fight crime,” he said and recalled that the Kosovo authorities claimed not to be able to combat crime because “Serbia is preventing them from joining Interpol”. He added that Pristina has access to the organization through the UNMIK mission, N1 reports. Kosovo’s membership in Interpol would mean that a lot of information would be compromised, the minister said.
