Quint countries salute Kosovo government returning land to Visoki Dečani monastery

The Heads of Mission of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, the United States and the European Union welcome and commend the action of the Government of Kosovo to implement the 2016 Constitutional Court decision, which confirmed the 14th-century Visoki Decani Monastery’s ownership of several hectares of land.

“Directing the Central Cadastral Office to register this land to the Decani Monastery and ensuring that this action has been completed is a significant step forward by the Kosovan authorities, in line with its European and Euro-Atlantic aspirations. As we stated last May on the anniversary of the Constitutional Court decision, enforcing the rule of law and respecting judicial independence are obligations for all democratically elected governments and necessary preconditions for Kosovo’s integration into European and Euro-Atlantic institutions”, says the statement of the leaders of the Quint countries.

Kosovo Prime Minister, Albin Kurti, announced the news at today’s 193rd session of the Kosovo government, while speaking about Kosovo’s membership in the Council of Europe.

While pointing out that he still does not like the decision of the Constitutional Court, which he considers it to be „strange and unfair“ and that he will not change his position on it, Kurti said, on the other hand, that the Kosovo government „does not have the means to annul it”.

„I will not change my attitude towards this harmful decision“, he stressed.
