The U.S. Secretary of State, John Kerry, who arrived in Pristina on Wednesday, called on Opposition lawmakers in Kosovo to stop setting off tear gas in parliament, and on the young country to combat corruption, Islamic radicalism and ethnic division, the Reuters news agency reported.

Kerry stopped in Pristina to convey Western concern over the slow pace of progress 16 years after a U.S.-led NATO air war set the former Serbian province on the road to independence, according to Reuters.

Kerry is to visit the Serbian capital of Belgrade on 3-4 December for a meeting of the Ministerial Council of the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE).
