US Ambassador Christopher Hill said on Friday that the outcome of the meetings between officials from Belgrade and Pristina is positive despite the fact that no progress has been achieved.

According to the ambassador, everyone was disappointed that short- and long-term issues weren’t resolved in the meetings between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti, European Union High Representative Josep Borrell and other EU officials. He said in a video statement that the meetings resulted in positive developments.

The ambassador said that the US and EU are cooperating closely, that there is a common understanding of issues and what he said was good chemistry which will help progress in the dialogue. He said it’s clear that the Serbian side entered into the talks in a positive spirit, prepared to talk and negotiate to achieve progress.
