Vjosa Osmani, Kosovo's President, said on Wednesday that Pristina would take part in the dialogue on the normalisation of relations with Belgrade only to reach an agreement and mutual recognition.

Addressing a debate organised by the Atlantic Council, she added Serbia should open archives about missing persons besides recognising Kosovo.

„Kosovo is ready for talks to reach mutual recognition with Serbia. I believe it will depend on how Serbia will behave in the dialogue and what it thinks about its European Union membership since it cooperates with Russia both economically and militarily,“ Osmani said.

Earlier on Wednesday, a Kosovo politician said Prime Minister Albin Kurti should cancel talks with Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic if Serbia did not apologise for „genocide.“

EU-facilitated Kurti – Vucic meeting is scheduled for June 15 in Brussels.
