(ANSA) - BELGRADE, SEP 23 - "The European Union calls for an immediate de-escalation in the north of Kosovo. Any provocations or unilateral actions must be avoided as they would go directly against the interest of the people of the region," the High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said in a statement. "We urge the leadership in Belgrade and Pristina to take a responsible approach and to work through the EU facilitated Dialogue to avoid any further escalation, restore a peaceful atmosphere and to work on viable solutions. It is in the interests of all to look for a way forward that enables freedom of movement and which improves people's daily lives," Borrell added.

"The EU-facilitated Dialogue is the only platform to address and resolve all open issues" and "all agreements reached in the process of the EU-facilitated Dialogue since its inception in 2011 remain valid and binding," the EU remarked. (ANSA).
