The European Union (EU) expects all regional leaders to attend the EU-Western Balkans top-level conference, a spokesperson for the European Commission (EC), Eric Mamer, said on Dec. 2, while the EC's media representative Peter Stano added that “the EU’s preliminary insight” into the appointment of a disputed Serb minister to the Government of Pristina was that “it does not meet the requirements of the Constitution of Kosovo.”

Mamer and Stano responded to a journalist’s question about the Union’s view on Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic’s decision not to attend the summit in Tirana, because Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti’s decision to appoint Nenad Rasic as Kosovo’s Minister for Communities and Returns was not condemned by the EU as it should have been.

“The European Union and its members urge Kosovo that all necessary proceedings in the appointment of ministers representing a minority community be fully respected, and our preliminary insight into the appointment (of Nenad Rasic) shows that the appointment does not meet the constitutional requirements,” Stano said.

The EU spokesman said that “in that context, the EU expects all Kosovo Serbs to return to Kosovo’s institutions, in compliance with the binding agreement in the Dialogue,” adding that the EU and its 27 member states expected their partners in the Western Balkans “to act in a European way when dealing with problems, sending messages, taking action and searching for solutions.”
