Kosovar Prime Minister Albin Kurti said that his country has accepted the proposal of the European Union (the Franco-German plan) to normalize relations with Serbia.
Kurti made a statement on his social media account after meeting with EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak in the capital, Pristina, “We accept the EU’s proposal to normalize relations between Kosovo and Serbia which is a good basis for continuing talks and a solid platform to move forward. As we see it” . made remarks.
Albin Kurti said that some question marks regarding the guarantees, implementation mechanisms and timetable will be discussed in the upcoming Brussels talks.
Lajac also told the press after the meeting that his visit focused on the Franco-German plan to normalize relations between Kosovo and Serbia.
Drawing attention to the need to implement previously signed agreements between the two countries, Lajcak said, “I am glad that Kosovo now accepts the EU proposal in principle. Our high-level talks will continue.” He said.
After his visit to Kosovo, Lajcak headed to Belgrade, the capital of Serbia, and met with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.
The European Union calls on Kosovo and Serbia to reach a final agreement that can solve the issues between the two countries to make progress in the integration process.
Finally, the two parties negotiate the text known as the “Franco-German Plan”, which is supported by all members of the United States of America and the European Union.
According to the plan, which was leaked to the media, Kosovo should allow the creation of a Federation of Serb Municipalities in municipalities in the country where most Serbs live.
Serbia is required to respect Kosovo’s territorial integrity and allow it to join international organizations.
Serbia considers Kosovo, which unilaterally declared its independence in 2008, to be its territory.
Serbia and Kosovo, which clash periodically, are trying to find a common way to normalize relations, and eventually the two countries get to know each other, within the scope of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue process that began in 2011 with the mediation of the European Union.
