According to Kosovar media Rexhepi had a conversation with EULEX Deputy Head Andy Sparkes, after which he concluded: "I will not remove a point, or comma of what I said". Reportedly Minister Rexhepi even continues his attacks: “EULEX has no readiness to act in the north.

There Rexhepi also stated, the Serbian Ministry of Internal Affairs (MUP) would be present in Kosovo and EULEX police would know about it.
