The EU firmly condemns the negative, divisive and inflammatory rhetoric used by Republika Srpska (RS) leaders during the celebrations of 9th of January this Sunday. Such rhetoric and actions have further heightened the tensions among communities throughout the country and are further escalating the ongoing political crisis.

Entuziazëm, energji, talent: të rinjtë janë shtylla kurrizore e çdo shoqërie, më e mira e të tashmes dhe të ardhmes të saj. Në dy vitet e fundit, pandemia ka krijuar fustracione për ambicjet e shumë të rinjve, por të rinjtë mbesin burimi i parë i shpresës për një të ardhme më të mirë. Prandaj është vendosur që viti 2022 të përcaktohet si Viti Evropian i Rinisë. Kjo do të thotë rritje të përpjekjeve për përfshirjen e prioriteteve të të rinjve në fushat relevante të politikave të BE dhe në çdo nivel të procesit të marrjes të vendimeve në BE, për të ri-vendosur një perspektivë pozitive për të rinjtë evropian që janë ndikuar në mënyrë negative nga ndikimi i pandemisë me KOVID-19.

Ентузијазам, енергија, талент: младите се столб на секое општество, најдоброто во неговата сегашност и иднина. Во изминатите две години пандемијата осуети многу младешки амбиции, но младите остануваат главен извор на надеж за подобра иднина. Оттука и одлуката 2022-та да се прогласи за Европска година на младите. Ова значи повеќе напори за да се вклучат младите во релевантните политики на ЕУ и на секое ниво од процесот на одлучување на Унијата, како и да се обнови нивниот позитивен пристап, кој беше погоден од пандемијата на ковид-19.


Enthusiasm, energy, talent: youth is the backbone of every society, the best of its present and its future. In the last two years, the pandemic has frustrated many youths' ambitions, but young people remain the first source of hope for a better future. That’s why it has been decided to designate 2022 as the European Year of Youth. This means increasing efforts to include youth priorities in relevant EU policy areas and at every level of the EU’s decision-making process, to re-establish a positive outlook for European young people negatively affected by the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
