The People's Party leader Vuk Jeremic said during a March 7 visit to Washington that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic "has arranged Kosovo's membership in the United Nations" and that top U.S. officials expected a lot from Belgrade and Pristina after Serbia's elections on April 26.
"Not so much before the Serbian election perhaps, but after it the U.S. administration expects a lot. Since senior U.S. official, Richard Grenell, who has been appointed the U.S.'s top intelligence official supervising the entire intelligence community in America, has decided to remain involved in negotiations on Kosovo, I believe that Grenell and other senior U.S. officials expect Belgrade and Pristina to reach an agreement by November. When I shared my opinion with the people I talked to in Washington, none of them disagreed," Jeremic said in an interview with the Voice of America.
Jeremic said at the European Conference 2020 at Harvard that the Western Balkans were unfortunately a region where democracy had been almost completely suspended, and that the states of the region were "kleptocratic dictatorships - some in the early stages and some in the advanced stage."
