Pristina, 9 February 2018 (MIA) - Five western nations have welcomed reactions from Kosovo leaders on withdrawing from the idea of repealing or amending a law on a war crimes court, AP reports.
A statement Thursday from the United States, Britain, France, Germany and Italy welcomed statements by Kosovo’s political leaders to abandon efforts to revoke the Specialist Chambers but reminded them “to keep their word and all Kosovo institutions to honour this commitment.”
In December, some Kosovo lawmakers tried to amend the law, seeking to extend its jurisdiction over Serbs, their former adversaries in the 1998-1999 war for independence. The court has jurisdiction over potential war crimes suspects who were Kosovo citizens. It has yet to hear any cases.
Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in 2008, which is recognized by 115 nations but not by Serbia. sk/10:08
