Economic Agreement Between Kosovo And Serbia

We once again congratulate President Vucic and Prime Minister Hoti for playing a leading role in the implementation of these agreements. This is an important development in the OSCE space. The representative of the Russian Federation, the President of the Council for October, said in his national function that Pristina was still sabotaging the constitution of the community of Serb communities in Kosovo. On 14 October, Mr Hoti again ruled out giving these municipalities executive powers. He expressed the hope that the mediation of the European Union would lead to significant progress and noted that the agreements signed by the parties in Washington, D.C, and stressed that Security Council Resolution 1244 (1999) remained the international legal basis for a settlement in Kosovo. The rights of the province`s non-Albanian communities have not improved. The protection of Orthodox sites in Kosovo requires special attention. In this context, his delegation believes that Kosovo`s accession to international organizations, including the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), is wrong. The return of terrorist veterans to Kosovo poses a threat to peace and stability in the region. “It`s a time bomb for security in the area,” he said. On October 4, 2019, Donald Trump appointed Richard Grenell as the president`s special envoy for the peace talks between Serbia and Kosovo. [3] After months of diplomatic talks on 20 January 2020, Grenell facilitated negotiations between Serbia and Kosovo, during which the two nations agreed to re-establish flights between their capitals for the first time in more than two decades.

[6] [1] The representative of China noted several meetings between Belgrade and Pristina between July and September and welcomed the official resumption of EU-backed dialogue after a two-year pause. He stressed the importance of respecting Serbia`s sovereignty and called for a dialogue-based solution. He called on Pristina to strengthen mutual trust between the different communities and called for the establishment of the Community of Serb Communities in Kosovo. The representative of the United States said that a briefing by the Special Representative of the European Union could have made this meeting a success. The agreements signed on September 4 at the White House included a number of economic standardization issues. “They will bring growth, investment and jobs to the citizens of both countries and bring a new tone of reconciliation in the pursuit of progress for the Western Balkans,” she said.
