REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, BRUSSELS -- The EU Tuesday welcomed the formation of a new government in Kosovo and said it looks forward to working with the new authorities in Pristina.
"Today's constitutive session of the Assembly and election of the government ends the political deadlock that prevented progress in Kosovo following the general elections of 8 June 2014," said EU High Representative Federica Mogherini in a statement.
"I am looking forward to working with the new government on Kosovo's EU path as well as to the resumption of the high-level dialogue for the normalisation of relations between Pristina and Belgrade in the near future. I am ready to personally engage in order to make further progress in the normalisation of relations," she added.
On his part, EU Commissioner for European Neighbourhood Policy, Johannes Hahn said "it is essential that Kosovo's new government gets to work on the many challenges it faces."
"Alongside with the resumption of the dialogue, the new government has to also resume its European reform agenda. I look forward to working with the new government to encourage and support Kosovo's efforts on the rule of law, public administration reform and economic governance," he added.
