Kosovo receives assurances from the US that the September 4 agreement will be implemented

The United States has given assurances to Kosovo that the September 4 agreement on economic normalization with Serbia, reached in Washington, will be implemented even after the change of US administration.

This is what the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Avdullah Hoti, said on Tuesday, December 8, during a press conference.

Hoti said that during this period, there has been regular communication with the current administration of President Donald Trump and added that he hopes that the cooperation will continue after January 20, when Joe Biden will be inaugurated as the new president of the United States.

On September 4, in the presence of President Donald Trump, Kosovo Prime Minister Abdullah Hoti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic signed separate documents on economic normalization.

The agreement includes a number of economic projects, such as the construction of a highway, a railway line and the launch of Pristina-Belgrade flights. In the agreement, the parties also agreed that the US conduct a feasibility study on Lake Ujman "with a view to sharing Lake Ujman as a safe supplier of water and energy."

Prime Minister Hoti also spoke about the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, which is expected to continue in Brussels on December 10, at the meeting between the state delegations of Kosovo and Serbia.

Hoti reiterated his position that he expects this process to be completed within months, and the final agreement to include mutual recognition.
