Must read

Under the EU Facilitation, the Parties have agreed on measures to avoid further escalation and to fully concentrate, as a matter of urgency, on the proposal on the normalisation of their relations, as presented this September  by the EU Facilitator and supported by France and Germany.

This means that Serbia will stop issuing licence plates with Kosovo cities’ denominations, and that Kosovo will cease any further actions related to re-registration of vehicles.

The EU will ensure that key issues and principles related to normalisation will be addressed in the context of the proposal. The Parties understand that all past Dialogue agreements must be implemented.

I will invite the Parties in the coming days to discuss the next steps within the framework of the proposal with the aim to present results by the next Special Group on Normalisation with Kosovo and the next update on Chapter 35 for Serbia. In case of obstruction by either Party, the EU Facilitator may terminate the process.

I and EU Special Representative Miroslav Lajčák will continue to facilitate the process of normalisation of relations and update the EU Member States and partners regularly about the progress achieved by the Parties.
