Kosovo: Mogherini at Mitrovica Bridge
“The European Union remains committed to the development of Kosovo, indeed 2016 saw a large number of projects commence and money transferred. I have already witnessed the investment that has begun to make a difference. The pedestrian area, sports hall and commercial centre are just three major infrastructural projects in South Mitrovica. Walking with the Mayor of North Mitrovica just now I have been introduced to the projects to which the European Union has invested greatly and can see that the vision on paper is now taking shape and is transforming into reality. And this changes people’s life for a better,”, – said EU top diplomat Federica Mogherini at the Mitrovica Bridge, Kosovo.
“I would like to reiterate that I am feeling a strong emotion, I am also very impressed of what has been achieved in a short period and I am convinced that this is because there is an understanding here, finally. There is an understanding that bridges can unite, that difficulties can be overcome and that this turns people’s life into something better, with investments, with understanding, with dialogue, with an everyday work, we can make our lives better here and this is the commitment of the European Union. You can also always count on us to be on your side, North and South, and accompany all citizens here on this difficult but precious journey”.
