Kosovo President Hashim Thaci took Facebook to reveal details of the meeting he and other Kosovo leaders had on Saturday morning with the US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, David Hale.
Thaci said that during a joint meeting of the US envoy Hale with the Kosovo leaders, including speaker of Parliament Kadri Veseli and Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, it was discussed on current political developments in Kosovo and Western Balkans as well as cooperation between Kosovo and the US. “We discussed current developments in Western Balkans, focusing in continuation of dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia in this new momentum, as a chance for reaching of a final comprehensive agreement, which would close all open issues between our countries. Therefore, a legally-binding agreement, which would bring mutual recognition and will grant Kosovo a seat at the United Nations, will also enable us overcome the situation of continuous hostility and contribute to peace, normality and cooperation between our countries,” Thaci wrote in Facebook.
“Disagreeing to Belgrade’s conditioning, Kosovo reiterates its pledge that remains committed to a comprehensive and transparent dialogue. Therefore, the Parliament of Kosovo has approved the Platform on Dialogue,” Thaci wrote. “We expressed our gratitude to letters of the US President Donald Trump and his support to reaching of an agreement which balances interests of both countries, as independent and sovereign. But, also we expressed our stance that status-quo and frozen conflict situation are unacceptable,” Thaci wrote.
