EU watches Kosovo’s situation carefully

Foreign ministers of Germany and the UK, Guido Westerwelle and William Hague, have warned that Serbia and Kosovo will miss an “historic opportunity” unless “they find a diplomatic solution to their differences”. 

The two ministers noted that the invitation for Croatia to join the European Union demonstrated just what the countries of this region have managed to achieve, but warned that “the latest events in Kosovo confirm that the successes achieved over recent years are still at risk due to ethnic tension.”

The two ministers said that “Serbia and Kosovo must find a diplomatic solution to their differences that respects the borders of Kosovo, improves the lives of all and leads both sides towards the EU”. They added that the EU would be watching progress in the region closely until then.
