Descriptive Text

The chairman of the Democratic Party of Kosovo, Memli Krasniqi, has asked the emissary of the European Union for dialogue, Miroslav Lajçak, to play a helping role in the lifting of sanctions against Kosovo.

Kosovo has been sanctioned by the EU since June last year after tensions in the north.

Krasniqi met with Lajcak on the sidelines of the Antalya Diplomatic Forum on Saturday.

"On the sidelines of the Antalya Diplomatic Forum, I also met the EU's special envoy for the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, Miroslav Lajcak. Together we discussed the political developments in Kosovo. I expressed my concern about the EU's punitive measures against Kosovo to the emissary Lajçak and asked him to play a helping role in their removal. The Euro-Atlantic orientation of our citizens and state is irrevocable and irreversible," Krasniqi wrote on Facebook.
