The Embassies of France, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States in Pristina have been closely following developments in Kosovo over the past days.
We are pleased that demonstrations have passed peacefully and would like to commend everyone, especially the Kosovo Police, involved.
We believe in the power of dialogue as a means to solve political disagreements, and encourage all sides to make use of the various opportunities for dialogue, including within the Assembly.
We are committed to strengthening the rule of law in Kosovo. We believe that no-one is above the law. We expect and request all procedures to be followed correctly in the spirit of transparency, especially in politically sensitive cases, and will continue to observe closely cases involving Members of the Assembly. As is the case in our countries, we expect in a fellow democracy for all politicians to be subject to the law regardless of their political affiliation.
