Josep Borrell warns Kosovo authorities

EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security Josep Borrell said last night that in talks with the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, and the president of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, he presented three demands – new elections in north Kosovo, ensuring the participation of Serbs in them and starting work on the establishment of the community of municipalities with a Serb majority, stating that otherwise there would be serious consequences on relations with the EU.

“I sat down with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and I spoke with Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani, about the dangerous situation in Kosovo. Together with Emmanuel Macron and Olaf Scholz, we met with President Vucic and President Osmani,” Borrell wrote on Twitter.

He also said that three clear demands have been presented.

“New local elections now, ensure the participation of Kosovo Serbs and start the work to establish the Association of Serbian Majority Municipalities in EU-facilitated Dialogue. Failure to do so will have serious consequences for our relations,” said Borrell.

Previously, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Olaf Scholz told the media that they presented new elections in the north and the formation of the ZSO (Community of Serb Municipalities) as demands in order to calm the situation in Kosovo down.
