Statement from U.S. Embassy Pristina

Statement from U.S. Embassy Pristina, December 7, 2019

The incendiary rhetoric and historical revisionism we have seen recently with regard to the events of 1999 are unacceptable.  We also caution against selective prosecution of speech on the basis of political orientation or community.  Freedom of speech has long been a bedrock principle of democracy. The events of this week pose another reminder of how important it is for Kosovo and Serbia to return to the table and refocus their energies on the future by normalizing relations.
