Since the beginning of the month, more than 1,500 warnings have been issued to the owners of vehicles with license plates issued by the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Serbia, and the deadline set by the Government of Kosovo expires today at midnight. After the deadline expiry, all those who have not re-registered vehicles with RKS plates will be fined 150 euros. 

As stated by the Kosovo Police, from "the beginning of the process until Friday (November 17), RKS license plates were taken by 26 drivers".

"The last vehicle was re-registered this week in the Mitrovica region, and a total of 1,592 warnings were issued," the police said.

According to the decision of the Kosovo government, as of November 21, owners of vehicles who have not changed their license plates will be fined 150 euros.

Officials of the European Union and the United States of America have repeatedly asked Pristina to postpone the re-registration obligation for ten months, but the Government of Kosovo did not meet the demands of Brussels and Washington.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti were invited to Brussels to discuss ways to solve the problem with license plates, and the meeting should take place tomorrow.
