Heads of EU missions in Kosovo, US call for the prompt formation of a government

Head of EU Office/EU Special Representative, Nataliya Apostolova, EULEX and Heads of EU Missions in Kosovo, in a joint press release issued on Thursday urged Pristina authorities to form a new government and resume the dialogue with Serbia.

The constitutive session of the Assembly has been scheduled to take place on 26 December. According to the heads of the EU missions in Kosovo the general elections of 6 October gave the opportunity to the people of Kosovo to exercise their democratic right to vote and elect their leaders. This is the essence of the democratic process. “We trust that the parties concerned will reach the necessary consensus to overcome remaining challenges,” it is written in the press release. “Kosovo needs to resume urgent work on reforms of economic and social development as well as rule of law, on the implementation of the EU-Kosovo Stabilisation and Association Agreement and on the EU-facilitated Dialogue with Belgrade”, the EU representatives said.

According to the Heads of EU Missions in Kosovo, a swift government formation is needed to take forward these processes, in the interest of Kosovo and its people and in line with the constitution and the expressed wish of the electorate.

US Embassy in Pristina agrees with the statement of the EU representatives in Kosovo who in a press release on Thursday urged authorities to form new government and resume work on reforms and dialogue with Serbia.

The US Embassy in Kosovo sharing the EU Office in Kosovo statement said that they concur with the EU. “The people of Kosovo are impatient for a Government that will bring positive change”, the US Embassy said in a statement posted on social media./ibna
