Déclaration de la Représentante spéciale de l’Union européenne au Kosovo (26 mars 2018)
We call on the authorities of both sides, Kosovo and Serbia, to show the necessary restraint and maturity so that the current situation on the ground in Kosovo does not escalate any further.
All issues of mutual concern need to be addressed within the framework of the EU facilitated Dialogue, which as an ultimate goal aims at a normalisation of relations between Kosovo and Serbia. This was reconfirmed by Presidents Thaçi and Vučić during their meeting with the High Representative/Vice-President Federica Mogherini last Friday.
The EU deplores today’s events in Kosovo, which run counter to normalisation of relations.
We expect both Serbia - in accession negotiations with the EU - and Kosovo - having a Stabilisation and Association Agreement with the EU in place - to respect fully, in letter and spirit, agreements reached between them in the Dialogue.
