The UK fully supports the work of the EU-Russia-US Troika aimed at reaching agreement between Belgrade and Pristina on Kosovo’s future status. The process will be concluded by the Contact Group reporting to the UN Secretary-General by 10 December.
So far there have been four rounds of face-to-face talks between the parties. The last round took place in Vienna on 5 November. A further round is scheduled to take place on 20 November.
We share the UN Secretary-General’s view that the status quo in Kosovo is unsustainable. We see an early resolution of Kosovo's status as crucial to the stability and security of the Balkans and Europe as a whole.
