Kosovo’s decision to prohibit holding Serbian elections on its soil has drawn criticism from the Quint countries, a group consisting of the United States, France, Germany, Italy, and Britain.
In a joint statement, they reiterate their disappointment in the government’s decision.
“While we appreciate Serbia’s availability to find a solution, it is with great disappointment that we take note of Kosovo Government’s decision to reject a constructive proposal presented by the Quint. With this decision, Kosovo’s Government failed to demonstrate its commitment to the principle of protecting the civil and political rights of all its citizens, including of members of minority groups,” the joint statement read.
In addition, the statement read that this sort of attitude undermines the country’s EU aspirations.
Quint also called on Kosovo to refrain from any “act or rhetoric” that might lead to heightened tensions.
