Today we have again witnessed the obstruction of the Assembly work, detrimental for the institutional life and for the citizens of Kosovo. We call for renouncement of violence in any form and by anyone, and for return to dialogue, based on principles of democratic government and democratic opposition functioning within a democratic institution. All sides need to refrain from the use of inflammatory rhetoric which only deepens the divide and makes a dialogue more difficult.
Aujourd’hui, nous avons à nouveau été témoins d'agissements visant à faire obstruction aux travaux de l'assemblée. De tels actes sont préjudiciables à la vie institutionnelle et aux citoyens du Kosovo. Nous appelons toutes les parties à renoncer à toute forme de violence et à renouer le dialogue sur la base des principes de gouvernement et d’opposition démocratiques qui caractérisent une institution démocratique. Toutes les parties doivent s’abstenir de déclarations incendiaires qui ne font qu’accentuer la fracture et rendre le dialogue plus difficile.
