BRUSSELS – The EU has condemned the latest incidents that took place in the Kosovo parliament, calling for renouncement of violence in any form and by anyone, and for return to dialogue.
“Today we have again witnessed the obstruction of the Assembly work, detrimental for the institutional life and for the citizens of Kosovo. We call for renouncement of violence in any form and by anyone, and for return to dialogue, based on principles of democratic government and democratic opposition functioning within a democratic institution. All sides need to refrain from the use of inflammatory rhetoric which only deepens the divide and makes a dialogue more difficult. Political goals need to be achieved through a democratic process, in the interest of the people of Kosovo”.
On Friday, the first parliamentary session this year was adjourned after Kosovo opposition lawmakers released tear gas in the plenary hall. The session was then resumed without opposition MPs.
