"We call on Kosovo and Serbia to engage constructively and normalize their relations completely through a comprehensive and legally binding agreement, so that they can advance on their European path," said a joint communique at the end of the G7 summit held on Friday and Saturday in France

It is added that without effective and comprehensive normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina through dialogue with the mediation of the EU there can be no lasting stability in the region. G7 foreign ministers also stressed and confirmed their commitment to security, stability, prosperity and the European perspective of the six Western Balkan partners.

They also pointed out the importance of improving on necessary internal reforms, especially with regard to the rule of law, stated the 25-page document published on the website of the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

G7 is comprised of the US, Germany, Italy, Japan, Canada, France, and the UK.
