Kosovo President Hashim Thaci had a telephone conversation with Serbian Prime Minister Alexander Vucic on Tuesday, reconfirming their commitment to dialogue as essential for peace and stability.
Serbian Prime Minister said in its official website that two leaders spoke “about the importance and consequences of the visit of EU High Representative for Foreign and Security Policy Federica Mogherini for the region of the Western Balkans.”
“The two interlocutors agreed that talks and dialogue between the two sides are of crucial importance for keeping peace and stability and highlighted their joint commitment to the implementation of the agreements reached in Brussles,” Vucic said.
Kosovo President Hashim Thaci, on the other side, said: “With PM Vucic we also spoke of the need to implement Brussels agreement. I’m firm believer that dialogue will usher new era in Balkans.”
Kosovo declared the independence form Serbia in 2008 and since then is recognized by 114 countries, including the U.S., Germany, Britain, and France. Serbia and its traditional ally, Russia, do not recognize Kosovo as an independent state, with Russia blocking country’s UN membership.
The phone conversation came on the day that Kosovo President Hashim Thaci asked the Parliament to vote a draft law that would see Kosovo Security Force being transformed to Army of Kosovo, a move strongly opposed by Belgrade. /tvklan.al
