Pristina. Admiral Harry Ulrich, Commander of the U.S. Naval Forces in Europe and of NATO's Joint Force Command based in Naples, Italy, said Saturday in Pristina NATO would not tolerate any violence in Kosovo, the Serbian Politika newspaper writes.

"NATO's peacekeeping forces in the province will react promptly and firmly in case of any kind of violence, as well as to those who encourage or plan violence," Ulrich said. He agreed with Kosovo authorities' assessment that the demonstrations of the Self-Determination movement were unproductive for Kosovo's future.
