Bundestag delegation chief says Serbian president is legitimate partner Izvor: bundestag.de

The head of a Bundestag delegation touring the Western Balkans told Deutsche Welle on Friday that the European Union has to do more to support democratic forces in Serbia but added that President Aleksandar Vucic is the legitimate person to talk to.

“Whether we want it or not, Vucic, the President of Serbia, is the legitimate colocutor” in the Kosovo talks, Greens MP Ottmar von Holtz said, adding that Germany and the European Union could have done more as mediators and with Vucic as their partner in the normalization of Belgrade-Pristina relations.  

He said that Germany and the EU have to engage themselves more in solving the Kosovo problem to stop other global players from jumping in. “The EU should not allow a mediation vacuum to appear. Russia is very interested in establishing itself in Serbia. (Turkish President Recep Tayyip) Erdogan is very interested in Kosovo. We have to engage ourselves more before those powers gain even more influence in the region,” Von Holtz said.
