I welcome the signing of the Stabilization and Association Agreement between the EU and Kosovo on Tuesday October 27. This is an important milestone which confirms the EU’s full commitment to supporting Kosovo in its efforts to implement the reforms needed to continue its European rapprochement.

This agreement will be key to strengthening our cooperation in a very large number of areas, notably within the economic, trade and political spheres. In this context, special attention will be given to issues relating to the rule of law, justice and domestic affairs.

It is also in line with the dialogue facilitated by the high representative to promote the normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia, which led to the signing of the agreement of August 25, 2015, which France fully supports.
