Four proposals submitted by Kurti to Vucic in the meeting held in Brussels

The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, and the Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic had a meeting this morning in Brussels. Prime Minister Albin Kurti through a Facebook post stressed that Kosovo has shown, according to him, its readiness for constructive dialogue to achieve mutual recognition.

He stressed that the next meeting will be held before July 25, again in Brussels, although there was no agreement on the agenda of the next meeting.

Kurti announced that he had raised four proposals at the meeting.

1. The six countries of the Western Balkans are advancing CEFTA to SEFTA (South-East European Free Trade Agreement) according to the EFTA-EEA model, ie agreements similar to that of Liechtenstein, Norway and Iceland with the EU.

2. Kosovo and Serbia must sign a joint peace agreement pledging not to attack each other. This is important now as never before, a day after the NATO Summit in Brussels and the unanimous messages given there.

3. After the mutual recognition between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia, in both our countries we should have bilateral reciprocity, including ethnic minorities.

4. On the issue of missing persons, those who disappeared with violence, the head of the Serbian delegation Veljko Odalovi should be removed from his position and should be interrogated since in 1997-1999, he was the "Chief of Staff of the Kosovo Region", and led the occupied Kosovo together with Mr. Zoran Angjelkovic.

Kurti stressed that none of his proposals received the approval of the Serbian delegation, the last three were rejected and the first was not commented. Meanwhile, today the EU foreign policy chief will meet with President Biden, where one of the topics of discussion will be the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue.
