Kosovo gov't extends EULEX mandate by two years

TANJUG_maliPRISTINA – Kosovo’s government on Friday decided to extend the mandate of the Eulex mission by another two years, Pristina media reported.Earlier this month, EU member states reached an agreement in principle that the mandate be extended by at least two years, while Kosovo Prime Minister Isa Mustafa justified the decision with a need to control the rule of law until 2018.

The Eulex mandate, set to expire on June 14, was extended until June 14, 2018, with the fields of the rule of law and security in Kosovo believed to still require EU presence.

Brussels has approved a EUR 34.5 million budget for Eulex until June 14, 2017.
