The ambassadors of the Quint countries to Kosovo, USA, Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy and EU representatives expressed their concern today about the situation in the parliament of Kosovo and the actions manifested by opposition parties.

Following a meeting with speaker of parliament, Kadri Veseli, the ambassador issued a joint statement where they considered all actions that threatened the principles and values of democracy as unacceptable.

The ambassadors said that such anti-democratic actions undermine Kosovo’s efforts to advance in the European path.

On his part, Veseli thanked the ambassadors for their support, stressing that Kosovo has been and will be a story of success in terms of partnership with western countries.

Veseli also stressed the need for a proactive engagement by everyone, within this partnership, in order for the country to move forward and for scenarios of destabilization not to be produced any longer.

The speaker of parliament promised that he will continue to make efforts in order to communicate with the opposition for parliamentary democracy not to be threatened and for the country to move forward. /ibna/
