US Ambassador Richard Grenell told Belgrade daily Blic on Wednesday that the agreement to resume Belgrade-Pristina flights will help the business community.

Representatives of Belgrade and Pristina signed a letter of intent with the German Lufthansa airlines to resume the flights after a break of more than 20 years. The letter was signed in the US Embassy in Berlin in the presence of Grenell and US National Security Advisor Robert O’Brien.

The historic signing of an agreement to establish direct flights between Belgrade and Pristina will help the business community open new jobs and expand markets, the US President’s special envoy for Kosovo is quoted as saying. He added that private individuals and business people will be able to replace six hours of driving with a direct flight of about 20 minutes.

Grenell, Washington’s ambassador in Berlin, said that economic development is the key to moving the process between Belgrade and Pristina forward. “When President (Donald) Trump asked me to be the special envoy for the Serbia-Kosovo peace talks, he said clearly that economic development is the key to getting the process moving. Economic growth is and always will be the greatest creator of wealth for the people of the region and the world,” he said.

“President Trump and his team have worked hard to reach this agreement which is just the beginning of the bright future that we predict for our friends in Serbia and Kosovo,” the ambassador said.
