Agreed statement regarding the project in Mitrovica

Over the last few days and under the facilitation of the EU Office and US Embassy, the parties comprising Mayor of North Mitrovica and Minister of Environment and Spatial Planning agreed to resolve the issue surrounding the construction of the wall in Mitrovica. Together they reached a solution that will ease tensions in the north of Kosovo, assist the freedom of movement and create an ambiance that will benefit all citizens in Mitrovica. During the coming days the parties will announce to the public the revised plan for the pedestrian zone, which emanates from the EU Dialogue agreement pertaining to the EU bridge project. We acknowledge that the issue has caused uncertainty in the preceding period, but are content that both sides have taken a constructive approach to conclude this matter in a sustainable manner.
