EU Presidency Statement on the latest events in Mitrovica, Kosovo

The Presidency of the EU strongly condemns violence that erupted today in the northern part of Mitrovica. It offers its full support to the joint efforts of UNMIK Police and KFOR to restore law and order, after the Court in Mitrovica had been forcibly seized by a mob on Friday, 14 March. The Presidency reiterates the importance of all components of international presence to effectively fulfill their mandate throughout the territory of Kosovo, in line with the UNSCR 1244.

The EU Presidency strongly believes that there can be no place for violence in Kosovo and that a multi-ethnic Kosovo can only be built through co-operation of all its communities, while fully respecting the rule of law and democracy.
