The European Union has expressed its regret and concern regarding the decision of Prishtina to open the Kosovar embassy in Jerusalem.

 “The EU position regarding Jerusalem is clear, in line with the UN Security Council Resolution 478 in 1980 that calls on member states to withdraw their diplomatic mission from Jerusalem to Tel Aviv. Every country of the EU, including the EU’s delegation for Israel, are situated in Tel Aviv,” – stated spokesman for the European Nation for Foreign Politics, Peter Stano.

Two days ago, Kosovo officially opened its Embassy in Jerusalem, only several weeks after the establishment of diplomatic ties with the country of Israel. Kosovo is the third country after the US and Guatemala opening its diplomatic mission in Jerusalem.
