Joint statement by EU High Representative Catherine Ashton and Commissioner Štefan Füle on the establishment of a new government in Kosovo
We welcome the establishment of a new government in Kosovo and the election of the President. We look forward to working with them to improve the lives of the people of Kosovo and to help them fulfil Kosovo's European perspective. We also count on the new government to tackle its reform priorities, in particular to strengthen public administration, enhance the rule of law and to ensure the integration of all communities. We welcome the new government's commitment to the Pristina-Belgrade dialogue. Here also we will be working closely with the Prime Minister and his new team.
