The new US ambassador to Serbia, Anthony Godfrey, said America's goal is to encourage dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina and to point out how much people in the region would benefit from finding a solution to the Kosovo problem.

"My job is to improve Serbia-US relations, but also to work in the interests of my country in the Balkans, and the interest of America is to make the Western Balkans a place of stability and prosperity, where democratic values are respected, where countries respect borders and have good relations," Godfrey said in an interview with Radio Television of Serbia.

He emphasized that this is the best way to the European Union, and that is why his goal is to use all the energy and means of the US embassy in Belgrade to help Serbia achieve its goal - which is the EU membership.

He noted that the French decision to block the beginning of negotiations with Northern Macedonia and Albania was a bad signal, but that his Brussels colleagues assured him that the accession policy has not changed completely and that the Union's expansion is engraved in its founding documents.

Oh wow! That's rich. Maybe you should have respected the borders of a sovereign nation you tore apart.

'We want Balkans where borders and democratic values are respected' Exactly! Leave Serbia's borders as they are defined in our Constitution. USA made a new country in Serbia's territory, and then built a largest European military base there. Up to a point USA kept so called KLA on a list of terrorist organizations, and then gave them air support in their rebellion, which included ambushing policeman's, killing civilians, abducting people, atacking sovereign country institutions... If any group try something similar in USA, wouldn't you wipe them from the face of the Earth? Official name of our territory you occupied is Kosovo and Metohija. Metohija means monastery land. That area is full of Serbian monasteries, hence why it is considered Serb's holy Land. Albanians, which are conviniently named kosovars, for easier media manipulation, already have their country, just south below. In KM, they were mainly living in cities, and they became majority in the area in the second half of XX century through a combination of high birth rate, aggression towards Serb population, and finally open armed rebellion. No Serb can recognize Kosovo as independent country and have clear conscience for the rest of his life.
