We demand review of dialogue position and political responsibility

The failure on UNESCO membership bid represents a major blow to Kosovo’s statehood and its international integration. We, the undersigned civil society organizations and individuals of this declaration, believe that this moment should be subject to political responsibility and review of Kosovo’s positioning on the dialogue. We consider that this is among the greatest diplomatic failures of the state of Kosovo since the declaration of independence, and as such should serve as a moment of reflection for necessary political and institutional changes. Hereby, we request: 1. Necessary conditioning towards Serbia on the continuation of the dialogue, 2. The European Union to ensure conditions for equal dialoguing, 3. Institutional responsibility for this failure, and 4. Fulfilling international obligations on cultural heritage despite non-membership in UNESCO. Find the statement here.
