International observers of the European Union (EU) committed to the local elections held on November 3 are instructed in various meetings with interlocutors not in any way refer to Kosovo as a state or republic.


Not to be repeated irregularities in local elections, as in previous elections held in the country, the EU has sent over 100 observers in Kosovo.

According to a document provided by the newspaper “Zeri” drawn up by the European Union institutions, observers are recommended because of their political sensitivity must adhere to certain practices in different conversations.

“When we talk about the rule, try to avoid meetings with interlocutors references to Kosovo as” state “or” republic “. Refer to the territory of Kosovo “, said among others in this document.

And when it comes to citizens, observers are advised to avoid references to Kosovo citizens, but as people of Kosovo.

In this document also mentions the names of settlements in Kosovo, which was recommended to be used in two languages: Albanian and Serbian.

“When they refer names, please note that most countries in Kosovo are Albanian and Serbian names.

In our external reporting, the practice is to establish Albanian name, followed by the Serbian name as Peja-Pec, except in municipalities with Serbian majority, where the Serbian name placed first, followed by the Albanian name: Gracanica- Gracanica “.
