Foreign ministers from the world’s seven most developed nations who met on Friday in northern France called on Pristina and Belgrade to engage in reaching a comprehensive legally binding agreement and advance their respective European paths.

The G7 foreign ministers of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States of America, and the High Representative of the European Union have reaffirmed their shared commitment to the security, stability, prosperity and European Union perspective of the six Western Balkans partners. “To this end, we emphasize the importance of advancing the necessary internal reforms, in particular on rule of law. We commend the governments of Greece and North Macedonia for concluding the Prespa agreement, which sets an example of reconciliation for the region,” it is stated in a press release issued after the meeting.

“Without effective and comprehensive normalization of Belgrade-Pristina relations through the EU-facilitated Dialogue there cannot be lasting stability in the region. We urge Kosovo and Serbia to engage constructively and normalize fully their relations through a comprehensive and legally-binding agreement, so that they can advance on their respective European paths,” the G7 foreign ministers said in a communiqué following a meeting in Saint Malo, France, on 6 April, 2019. /GazetaExpress/
