Statement by the EULEX Head of Mission Xavier Bout de Marnhac regarding the incident at Gate 1

27 September 2011

The Head of EULEX, Xavier de Marnhac has made the following statement regarding today’s incident at Gate 1 at Jarinjë/Jarinje:

“EULEX strongly condemn the violence that has taken place in northern Kosovo against the international community and calls on everybody to show restraint and act responsibly. The

European Union earlier today expressed its full support for the efforts of KFOR and EULEX to defuse the situation. Furthermore, the EU has equally supported the removal of the barricades as they restrict the freedom of movement.

Once more EULEX must emphasize that violence is not the way forward. It is important that people remain calm, show restraint and act responsibly.

It is important that people respect the rule of law”.
