  • [01] Chris Patten condemns murder of FYROM soldiers, urges continued dialogue The European Commissioner for External Relations, Chris Patten, yesterday issued the following statement on the murder of eight FYROM soldiers on the border with Kosovo : "I utterly condemn this senseless act of murder, and extend my sympathy to the families of the soldiers who have been killed. I urge all political leaders, including in Kosovo, to speak out clearly against this violence and to outlaw its perpetrators. The EU has repeatedly made clear its commitment to FYROM's sovereignty and territorial integrity. We stand by that commitment, and continue to urge the FYROM government to respond in an appropriate and proportionate way. In recent weeks, political parties in FYROM had established a framework for addressing legitimate grievances through cross party dialogue. This attack was clearly designed to derail that process. It must not be allowed to succeed. I appeal to political leaders in FYROM to stand firm in the face of this new attack, and to redouble their commitment to the dialogue they had begun. It is the only way to defeat the extremists, and the only way to secure the future of their country in Europe. We stand ready to continue to facilitate such a dialogue."
