EU: Association will not have executive competencies

A spokesman for the European Union said on Tuesday that the EU’s position is that the Association/Community of Serb-majority municipalities will not be a parallel government and that it will not adopt own laws, as was made clear by former EU High Representative Federica Mogherini during her address to the Kosovo Assembly in May 2016.

Asked if EU High Representative Josep Borrell and EU Special Representative Miroslav Lajcak maintain the position that the Association/Community will not have executive powers, EU spokesman Peter Stano said: “We would like to refer you to the statement made by the former head of European diplomacy, Mogherini, at the Kosovo Assembly, on May 6, 2016, in which she explained clearly the position of the EU”.
