Mr. Stoltenberg highlighted NATO’s continued support for efforts to re-energize talks between Belgrade and Pristina - including through the EU-facilitated process - and stressed that dialogue remains the only way to achieve a lasting political solution in the Western Balkans.

The NATO Secretary General also emphasized that NATO’s commitment to stability across the Western Balkans is steadfast. He reiterated that the NATO-led KFOR mission is focused on the daily implementation of its mandate derived from United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of 1999, namely to provide a safe and secure environment and freedom of movement for all communities in Kosovo.
