Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti did not reach an agreement to ease tensions between the two countries at today’s talks under the auspices of the EU in Brussels, but the talks will continue in the coming days, the EU’s high foreign policy representative Josep Borrell announced after the talks.
We do not give up, we need solutions, he said in a short statement after the five-hour talks.
He pointed out that the international community does not want to see new tensions in Kosovo and that both sides will be fully responsible if they escalate.
There is still time until September 1, he added. At that time, Pristina’s new rules regarding personal documents and license plates are expected to come into effect, causing tension in Kosovo’s majority-Serb north at the end of July.
