Kosovo: Statement by the EU Spokesperson on the latest developments

The European Union takes note of the resignation of the President of Kosovo, Hashim Thaçi, and welcomes the fact that he has agreed to cooperate with the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office.

The EU strongly supports the work of the Kosovo Specialist Chambers and the Specialist Prosecutor’s Office. Full cooperation with these institutions is essential as an important demonstration of Kosovo’s commitment to the rule of law, which in turn is a core element for Kosovo’s progress on its European path and for EU’s engagement with the Western Balkans as a whole.

Following the resignation of President Thaçi, we trust the representatives of Kosovo to ensure the continuity of the institutions as spelled out in Kosovo law./ibna
