BRUSSELS – European Commission Spokesperson Maja Kocijančič stated Wednesday that the EU asks the relevant authorities in Kosovo to ensure the conditions for the people who wish to, to attend meetings of Serbian politicians ahead of Serbian presidential elections.

“We are following events in northern Kosovo related to visits by Serbian politicians ahead of the Serbian presidential elections on Sunday closely,” stated Kocijančič.

She added that they welcome such visits scheduled under the arrangements agreed in the EU facilitated Dialogue and said that it is unfortunate that recently visits planed under these arrangements could not take place.

“We have received reports about road blocks, preventing people to attend meetings in northern Kosovo today. The EU asks the relevant authorities in Kosovo to ensure the conditions for the people who wish to, to attend these gatherings,” EC Spokesperson highlighted.

On the organisation of Serbian elections in Kosovo she said that the OSCE should be mandated to facilitate the collection of votes for the Serbian presidential elections in Kosovo on the basis of the practice established during previous such occasion, in accordance with relevant agreements reached in the context of the Dialogue.
