The US President’s envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina talks Ambassador Richard Grenell welcome the Balkan Schengen initiative but warned that it could succeed only if everyone, including Kosovo, is included in it, Pristina media reported on Friday.

The media quoted a press release from the US Embassy in Berlin which welcomed the initiative for a Western Balkan mini-Schengen as the way to start the free flow of people and goods. “We believe that for this initiative to succeed it has to include everyone in the region, including the government of Kosovo. The Trump administration is focused on helping the entire region to create economic opportunities and jobs for the young,” the press release is quoted as saying.  

The Kosovo authorities refused to take part in the recent meeting between top officials from Serbia, Albania and North Macedonia which agreed to launch the mini-Schengen initiative. Politicians in Pristina said that the initiative was an attempt to create a new Yugoslavia.
