NATO Spokesperson Oana Lungescu said the Alliance welcomes the agreement reached by negotiators from Belgrade and Pristina to de-escalate the situation in the north of Kosovo.

„We welcome the agreement on de-escalation and the way forward in northern Kosovo reached between Belgrade and Pristina, under the auspices of the EU-facilitated Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue. The NATO-led KFOR mission will play a fundamental role to ensure its effective implementation, in accordance with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999 mandating KFOR to ensure a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement for all communities living in Kosovo,” she is quoted as saying in a press release.

“NATO continues to firmly support the EU-facilitated Dialogue and other efforts aimed at the normalisation of relations between Belgrade and Pristina. This is the only path towards achieving a lasting political agreement for the region and it is key to stability across the region,” she said.

Lungescu recalled that NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg spoke with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti and that Stoltenberg will meet with EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak at NATO Headquarters on Friday.
