Statement of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to northern Kosovo


The events that have taken place in northern Kosovo in the period July 25-28, 2011 and that are related to the introduction of an embargo on the import of goods from Serbia to Kosovo are a regrettable incident that could have been avoided.

Adopting unilateral measures without a prior consultation with the representatives of the international community is contrary to the spirit of the ongoing dialogue between Serbia and Kosovo. The talks are to be the only platform for dealing with contentious issues.

Incident shows the need for a reinforced role of the EU in the process of normalization of the relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
