Lawmaker: NATO should remain in Kosovo

The NATO alliance parliament chief says the alliance should stay longer in Kosovo, to help stabilize the new country.
Karl Lamers, the head of the organization's parliamentary assembly, said Friday there are still problems at Kosovo's northern border with Serbia, more than 12 years after the alliance's troops were deployed there.
Kosovo declared its independence from Serbia in 2008. Serbia refuses to recognize the secession.
This year, Serbs in northern Kosovo blocked main roads to stop authorities from setting up customs, a move they see as establishing Kosovo's statehood over the whole territory.
Lamers spoke during NATO's annual parliamentary assembly, which is taking place in Romania.
