This framework is necessary "to respond to the serious accusations from the Council of Europe report," High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini said on Tuesday.

In a release, Mogherini said that the step of Kosovo MPs was not an easy one but it is a sign of responsibility and determination to reach the truth and adopt decisions in keeping with Kosovo's European path.

The EU is committed to providing assistance in the process and continuing cooperation with everyone so as to complete the process aimed at establishment of necessary legal mechanisms which will make it possible to launch independent and fair court proceedings in near future, states the release.

The Kosovo parliament adopted on Monday the constitutional amendments that will open the room for constitution of a special court in charge of crimes committed by the Kosovo Liberation Army, and the draft law on the special court and special prosecutor's office was also backed in principle during the parliament session.
