Serbia-Kosovo – France is concerned about the situation in North Kosovo (12 December 2022)


France is very concerned about the situation in North Kosovo and strongly condemns the unacceptable attack on the EULEX Kosovo mission and all the acts of violence on the ground. It urges the parties to show the utmost restraint and a sense of responsibility to reduce tensions.

France fully supports the European mediation, which must make progress on a comprehensive, legally binding agreement between Serbia and Kosovo and make headway on the two countries’ prospects of a future in Europe. It strongly encourages the two parties to re-engage in the dialogue facilitated by the EU.

The Minister for Europe and Foreign Affairs will talk about the issue with her European counterparts at the Council of European Union foreign ministers, which is taking place in Brussels today.
