Catherine Ashton urges Belgrade and Pristina to respect commitments

The EU Foreign and Security Policy chief Catherine Ashton condemns the recent series of arrests and aggressive language between Pristina and Belgrade and urged the two sides to respect their earlier commitments.

Baroness Ashton’s office announced on Friday that the EU is monitoring the latest developments in Kosovo seriously and strongly condemns the arrests carried out on both sides:

“The tension and provocations we have seen in recent days are not in the spirit of the dialogue or in the spirit of the EU path that both sides have chosen. We expect both Belgrade and Pristina not only to live up to their commitments to implement the dialogue agreements but also to respect its obligations in terms of human rights and to meet the Copenhagen Criteria.”
