Kosovo President Hashim Thaci said on Oct. 14 that mutual recognition between Kosovo and Serbia should be provided for by item number one of a legally binding agreement with Serbia.

After a meeting with the European Union's special envoy for Belgrade-Pristina normalization talks, Miroslav Lajcak, President Thaci said that after the recognition, other issues in the bilateral relationship would be easier to handle.

"It is only mutual recognition, following the standards laid out in a potential agreement, might be a good and perhaps the only opportunity to guarantee stability in the region, good neighborly relations between the two countries and a European future for both," Thaci said to reporters in Pristina.

Lajcak has been staying in Kosovo since Oct. 13 to discuss with political leaders and civil society representatives the progress made since a dialogue with Serbia was restarted in July, as well as the next steps in the talks on a comprehensive agreement between Belgrade and Pristina. Lajcak is expected to travel to Serbia on Oct. 15 to discuss the continuation of the dialogue with top-ranking government officials in Belgrade.
