The Foreign Affairs Committee in the European Parliament has held a debate on Monday evening about the latest developments in Kosovo.

The debate was focused on the report submitted by the deputy speaker of the European Parliament, Ulrike Lunacek, who is also a rapporteur on Kosovo.

Lunacek has collected the main points of this report and has underlined the signing of the Stabilization and Association Agreement, warning that the European Parliament will have its say at the beginning of next year.

Lunacel has also said that the episodes of violence in the parliament of Kosovo are not acceptable methods and she invited the sides to dialogue.

The proposal document has also praised the incentive of the MPs of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani of the Democratic League of Kosovo and Ilir Deda of Self Determination, on the way this situation can be resolved.

The draft resolution also points out the decision of the Constitutional Court to temporarily suspend the agreement on the creation of the Association of Serb Communes and invited political forces to use this period to resume parliamentary proceedings and engage in constructive dialogue.

The draft report also expresses its regret about the fact that Kosovo could not become a member of UNESCO and about the preventive role that Serbia has played, which was against the commitment to develop good neighboring relations.

The report also says that there was no unity between the EU countries in relation to Kosovo’s accession in the UNESCO.

The report also points out the lack of big results in the fight against organized crime and corruption and calls for the freedom of speech to be strengthened and for journalists to be better protected. /ibna/
