EU: Kosovo must understand dialogue has no alternative

Peter Stano, the lead spokesperson for the external affairs of the European Union, told the news website on Wednesday that the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia has no alternative and that Prishtina and Belgrade must be ready to resume the process and achieve a compromise.

Asked to comment on statements by some political leaders in Kosovo that the dialogue must be suspended, Stano said: “We are confident that to meet the aspirations of the citizens of Kosovo for a European future, Kosovo must understand and agree that there is no alternative to dialogue … The EU commends the clear vision of Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti and his readiness to make the difficult choice, by displaying consistency and maturity, especially in these challenging times”.

“The Kosovo society is mature enough to understand that the dialogue cannot be used for short-term political arguments. Kosovo’s European prospect is real. But achieving this is in the hands of the citizens of Kosovo and their elected leaders. The European Union remains committed to offering every help. The facilitation of the dialogue is part of this help,” Stano said.
