“The representatives of 35 NGOs from Belgrade and Pristina called on the European Diplomacy chief to clearly declare herself against both the division of Kosovo and the swap of territories based on the ethnic principle, the Beta news agency reported.

In a letter to Federica Mogherini, the civil societies’ activists warned that such developments would undoubtedly cause a chain reaction in other Balkan countries and lead to numerous demands for the borders’ change in the region and push it into new wars.

‘Those frequent hints of a possible change of borders send a very dangerous message to both the citizens of Kosovo and Serbia as well as to the whole region, that there is a real chance of legitimising this risky principle which could drive the region into bloody conflicts,’ the letter said.” (N1)
