NATO strongly supports the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue and when it comes to "possible border adjustments", it is hoped that the two sides will find a mutually acceptable solution, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said in Brussels today.
He said this on the eve of the meeting of NATO foreign ministers who will, together with EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, discuss "NATO relations with the countries of the Western Balkans" on Wednesday.
When asked by a journalist whether the Atlantic Alliance fears that there could be consequences if the solution for the problem in the dialogue between Belgrade-Pristina had some "border corrections", Stoltenberg said that "NATO vigorously supports the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue because it is the only way to find an answer to unresolved issues".
The head of the Atlantic Alliance reminded that he recently pointed out in Belgrade the importance of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue.
- When it comes to the possible border adjustments, I emphasize that NATO supports dialogue and I hope that the two sides will find a solution that will be acceptable for both Belgrade and Pristina - said Stoltenberg.
According to Stoltenberg, "it is important that both sides refrain from challenging moves and provocative messages and try to reduce tension and make progress."
He stressed that "NATO will continue to be present in Kosovo, there is our operational mission KFOR which is significant for stability".
- KFOR will also continue to be impartial in order to make sure that stability and security will be guaranteed and that there will be progress towards political efforts to come to a solution through political negotiations - concluded the NATO Secretary General.
