A spokesperson for the European Union (EU), Peter Stano, stated on April 5 that Serbia and Kosovo would face serious consequences on their path to the Union if they failed to fulfill the obligations defined in the Agreement on the path to normalization between Kosovo and Serbia and its Implementation Annex signed in Ohrid.

"I can only reiterate what the EU expects from Kosovo and Serbia, which is to begin fulfilling the agreements signed in Ohrid and Brussels without delay. If they fail to do so, or refuse to implement what they agreed to carry out, there will be serious consequences with regard to their path in the EU integration process," Stano told reporters in Brussels.

When asked if an initiative by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic to create a team to fight against Kosovo's membership in the Council of Europe was in line with Article 4 of the Agreement on the path to normalization, Stano declined to comment on the Serbian leader’s statements, or the intentions of Serbian institutions, and merely repeated Brussels' expectations.

Article 4 of the Agreement, which in Serbia is often referred to as the Franco-German plan, stipulates that Serbia will not oppose Kosovo's membership in any international organization.
