Kosovo and Serbia negotiations
The European Union demands Kosovo and Serbia to reach a final agreement that can resolve the issues between the two countries to advance 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 has been leaked to the media, Kosovo is required to allow the creation of a Federation of Serb Municipalities in municipalities in the country where most Serbs live. The agreement establishing the union between Kosovo and Serbia was signed in 2013 and mediated by the European Union, but has not been put into practice.
Serbia, which considers Kosovo, which unilaterally declared its independence in 2008, as its “territory”, is required to respect Kosovo’s territorial integrity and allow it to become a member of international organizations.
Serbia and Kosovo have been trying for years to find a common way to normalize relations, and eventually the two countries get to know each other, as part of the dialogue process between Belgrade and Pristina, which began in 2011 with the mediation of the European Union.
EU officials hope negotiations for the Franco-German plan will be completed in the spring.
