The High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, stated on Monday that he believes that reaching an agreement between Belgrade and Pristina is a matter of months, not years, if both sides get involved constructively, FoNet reports.
“We support all initiatives and the United States is our important partner, but the European Union is a mediator in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue,” Borrell said after the meeting, adding that the dialogue continues, although it is a complex process, emotional for both sides, stating that Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić and Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti recently held three meetings.
Borrell stated that both sides should prepare for the continuation of the dialogue, despite difficult issues, adding that reaching an agreement is a necessary condition on the road to the EU.
“Countries that want EU membership must fulfill the obligations related to good neighborly relations and mutual cooperation, and politicians should promote the policy of mutual trust,” Borrell said.
According to him, there is a European perspective for all the countries of the Western Balkans.
