European Union High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy Josep Borrell said in Ohrid, North Macedonia, on March 18, that Serbia and Kosovo had reached agreement on an Implementation Annex to the deal on the path to normalizing relations.
"Finally, after 12 hours, we have agreement on how to implement the deal that Serbia and Kosovo reached in Brussels on Feb. 27," Borrell told reporters in Ohrid.
The European Union released the text of the Implementation Annex to the Agreement on the Path to Normalization of Relations between Kosovo and Serbia, which states that it is now an integral part of the negotiating framework in the EU admission process and that failing to honor its obligations could directly negatively affect both sides' bid to join the EU.
Borrell said the annex was as good as adopted after its publication as a press release and that it had became an integral part of the negotiating framework, i.e. the path to the EU for both Serbia and Kosovo. He went on to say that this was not just about Kosovo and Serbia, but about peace, security and prosperity across the region.
