Foreign ministers of Germany and France have demanded an immediate resumption of EU brokered dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia.
French foreign minister, Jean-Yves Le Drian and German foreign minister, Heiko Maas says they’re determined to overcome all remaining obstacles between Serbia and Kosovo.
According to them, all unsolved issues between the two countries will act as destabilizing factors for Western Balkans and will have an effect on Europe’s security.
“For this reason, EU member countries appointed one of the most professional diplomats in Europe, Miroslav Lajcak, as special envoy for dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina and other regional affairs. France and Germany are ready to support him and his team. In April 2019, chancellor Merkel and president Macron invited regional leaders to a summit in Berlin. Now that Miroslav Lajcak has assumed his duties, time has come for dialogue to resume. The goal is to reach a sustainable, all-inclusive and legally binding agreement between Belgrade and Pristina, which addresses all pending issues and contributed to the stability of the region. President Macron has declared he’s ready to hold a second summit in Paris. Nevertheless, the readiness to engage in dialogue is a prerequisite for this”, the two ministers said in an article published today by Koha Ditore. TemA
