The European Commission has called upon the authorities in Skopje and Belgrade to exercise restraint and to solve the issue with the withdrawal of the personnel of the Serbian Embassy in Skopje in a calm manner.

The spokesperson of the European Commission said that the diplomatic incident is a bilateral issue for both countries that the European Union is observing with great attention.

-We look to both sides to exercise restraint and deal with the issue calmly, in the spirit of good neighbourly relations – the EU Commission’s spokesperson said.

Offical Belgrade withdrew the whole personnel from their embassy in Skopje, as Serbian Vucic announced, after receiving intelligence about “offensive actions” planned against Serbia.
