US Ambassador Christopher Hill said on Tuesday that communities like the Community of Serb Municipalities (CSM) in Kosovo exist in multi-ethnic environments across Europe.

Answering questions on Twitter, the ambassador said that the CSM is not a unique model.

The idea behind these negotiations is to prepare Kosovo and Serbia for a European future and It think that what we see in multi-ethnic societies across Europe is similar to the CSM in Kosovo and it would not be a unique example because similar models exist in the rest of Europe,” Hill said when asked why the US hasn’t secured the forming of the CSM.

Belgrade insists on the forming of the CSM as set out in the 2013 Brussels Agreement while Pristina opposes the idea claiming that the CSM is not in line with the Kosovo Constitution.
