Thaci: Agreement could be reached in Washington Izvor: N1

Kosovo President Hashim Thaci said on Wednesday that Belgrade and Pristina could realistically reach an agreement to normalize their relations at the meeting in Washington on June 27.

“If an agreement is not reached on June 27 Kosovo and Serbia will be losers. If an agreement is reached both sides will win and gain EuroAtlantic values and the commitment of the US is reflected in the determination to reach an agreement between countries and people ostile for more than a century. I believe that only the US can do it now, President Trump’s ladership and the commitment of Ambassador Grenell,” Thaci told the Voice of America Albanian-language program.

He said that Kosovo will benefit in all areas from the agreement. “I expect benefits in the economy, in internal consolidation, good-neighbor relations in the region, the prospect of drawing closer to NATO and prospects for UN membership,” he said.

According to the Kosovo president, the process is not about a decision but an obligation which has to be achieved in the coming weeks and months.

Thaci said there would be no changes of borders but added that he expects two sovereign states to conduct a border demarcation after the agreement is reached.

He said that the US and European Union initiatives are not separate. “I think these two processes will complement each other but the US are a step ahead, clearer, more precise, faster and more determined to reach an agreement,” he said.
