The European Union congratulates the new Kosovo
government led by Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti and looks forward to our joint
work to advance EU-Kosovo relations, according to a joint statement by High
Representative/ Vice-President Josep Borrell and Neighbourhood and Enlargement
Commissioner Olivér Várhelyi.
“The coronavirus pandemic will remain a shared
challenge for the foreseeable future and the EU will continue to stand by
Kosovo and its people. We also want to see Kosovo advance on its European path.
This will require determined reform efforts to strengthen the rule of law, in
particular the fight against corruption and organised crime, and to promote
socio-economic development,” the EU said in a statement.
“A swift resumption of the EU-facilitated
Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue, with the support of EU Special Representative
Miroslav Lajčák, is essential to achieve a comprehensive normalisation of
relations with Serbia. The EU-facilitated Dialogue is the only way to turn
Kosovo’s European future into a reality for its citizens,” the EU said in a
press release. Kosovo Parliament voted on Wednesday new Government headed by
Avdullah Hoti of the Democratic League of Kosovo (LDK). /GazetaExpress/
