Kosovo, Serbia Dialogue ‘Can Improve Situation in North’

The head of the EU mission in Kosovo reiterates that political will from Belgrade and Pristina is necessary to improve the situation in the north.

Xavier De Marnhac, head of the EU rule-of-law mission in Kosovo, EULEX, said recently that he is interested in expanding the rule-of-law in the disputed northern part of Kosovo. 

De Marnhac was criticised by Kosovo’s government when he said last month that the northern part of Kosovo, which is majority Serb and largely controlled by Belgrade, should be part of the ongoing dialogue between Pristina and Belgrade, launched in Brussels in March.

Top Kosovo officials have also recently asked the mission to expand its presence in the disputed north, where the Pristina government has little control.
