Kosovo Premier Albin Kurti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic have assumed the obligation of working to normalize relations through dialogue and have confirmed that there is no other way, EU special envoy Miroslav Lajcak said in Brussels on June 15, adding that "the meeting was not easy."
After the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue continued Lajcak said that a new round would be held before the end of July. "The meeting was not easy, but it happened," the EU envoy said, adding that "both leaders spoke of what each of them expected from the dialogue in a very open and honest exchange of opinions."
"For the EU it is important that both leaders confirmed that there is no other way than to normalize relations between Kosovo and Serbia," Lajcak stressed. Vucic and Kurti, he said, "have assumed the obligation of acting toward reaching a comprehensive normalization of relations through the dialog."
"The EU, as well as the citizens of Kosovo and Serbia, have high expectations regarding the two leaders in terms of overcoming the legacy of the past and both Kosovo and Serbia have taken the path that leads to a European future by being able to normalize relations in a comprehensive way," Lajcak said in a brief remark on the latest round of dialog, in which Belgrade was represented by Vucic while Kurti spearheaded Pristina's delegation.
