Statement on the Specialist Chambers

Norway is deeply concerned about the initiative to abrogate the law on the Specialist Chambers and Specialist Prosecutor´s Office.

Norway is deeply concerned about the initiative to abrogate the law on the Specialist Chambers and Specialist Prosecutor´s Office. Such a decision would seriously undermine Kosovo´s Euro-Atlantic integration as well as the progress towards rule of law. It would also make it more difficult to restart the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, and to facilitate the full participation of Kosovo in the international community. Norway is a long-standing close friend of Kosovo and has supported Kosovo politically and financially for many years. We must underline that it clearly is in Kosovo´s best interest to withdraw the initiative.
