The European Parliament urges EU countries that have not yet recognized Kosovo independence, to do so.
The European Parliament, in the resolution adopted today, with 424 votes for and 133 against, also welcomed the successful deployment of EULEX throughout Kosovo, including in the north of River Iber, reiterating the rejection of the possibility of the division of Kosovo.
The resolution also states that “the transitional agreements between the UN and the government of Serbia must be re-examined in light of developments in the field, when the EULEX reaches full operational capabilities,” dealing a blow to Serbia's attempts to limit Kosovo's soveregnity in the north through the so called six-point talks.
The European Parliament ended the debate about the first anniversary of Kosovo independence on Wednesday.
Most European deputies stressed the importance of territorial integrity of Kosovo by standing firmly against territorial division. However, a limited number of deputies from Romania and Communist political groups called for a new international conference on Kosovo's status or to allow the northern part of the country to join Serbia.
