Statement by the Embassies of France, Germany, Italy, the United Kingdom, and the United States, June 6, 2017
Over the past few days, including today, we have received a number of deeply concerning reports of efforts to influence the results of the election in Kosovo through threats and intimidation. In particular, there appears to be an attempt to intimidate and coerce members of the Kosovo-Serb community to vote in a particular way. Such actions are completely unacceptable. We call upon all those engaged to desist, and urge the Kosovo authorities and police to investigate fully.
All Kosovo citizens must be able to cast their votes according to their conscience and free from intimidation, interference, and fear. These elections are an opportunity for the citizens of Kosovo to choose their own representatives. Only the citizens of Kosovo have this power, and this responsibility. As members of the international community, we will work with whomever you elect.
