EULEX statement on future role

17 January 2012

The EULEX Head of Mission, Xavier de Marnhac, is aware of the current debate about the future role of EULEX in Kosovo. Mr De Marnhac would like to reiterate the fact that a strategic review is currently taking place in Brussels regarding the future shape and priorities of the EU rule of law mission and that no decisions have been made regarding any future, potential re-shaping of the mission.

“Any recommendations emanating from this review will have to be approved by EU Member States. EULEX’s role can only adapt and change with their approval. It is too early to say what the review will recommend,” said Xavier de Marnhac.

It is standard procedure in the EU to review missions on a regular basis. The review involves input from many stakeholders, including EULEX and the Government of Kosovo.
