The European Union (EU) is prepared to call a meeting between the Serbian and Kosovo leaders, provided tangible steps had been made to reduce tensions in Kosovo, a spokesman for the European Union (EU), Peter Stano, said in Brussels, on June 5.
Stano said that the EU and U.S. special envoys, Miroslav Lajcak and Gabriel Escobar, were travelling to Pristina on June 5, after which they would be visiting Belgrade “to see for themselves if the request by the EU and the U.S. for urgent de-escalation have been met, and if steps have been made towards a durable solution within the EU-mediated Dialogue.”
“The EU is prepared to call a high-level meeting between President (of Serbia Aleksandar) Vucic and Prime Minister (of Kosovo) Albin Kurti, as soon as conditions for the meeting have been met, and they consent to it,” Stano explained.
According to the lead spokesperson for foreign affairs and security policy, “it is most important to reduce tensions and make tangible steps in that direction on the ground, which is precisely why the special representative Lajcak, together with the U.S. representative Escobar, were travelling to Pristina and Belgrade.”
“Borrell will then brief EU members, and a decision will be made on further steps,” the EU spokesman concluded.
