Kosovo dailies carry quotes of EU Commissioner Jose Manuel Barroso as saying that
it is time for the EU to get more responsibilities in Kosovo. Barroso, speaking before a
European Parliament plenary session, said that Kosovo is entering the final phase
of status and therefore ‘Europe, too has to prepare to take more responsibilities’.
‘At a time when talk on Kosovo status entered the critical stage, the EU has to
demonstrate its capabilities to offer concrete contribution for the solution of this
complex and delicate issue’, said Barroso, according to Koha Ditore.
