Serbia-Kosovo – Q&A from the press briefing (4 September 2020)


Q: What is your position regarding the negotiations currently taking place at the White House between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo’s Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti?
Do France and the EU support this initiative by Donald Trump’s administration aimed at achieving a historic agreement between Belgrade et Pristina?

A: Finding a solution to the dispute between Serbia and Kosovo is key to lasting stabilization in the western Balkans and to the fulfillment of these two countries’ European perspectives.

France is fully committed to promoting the full normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia, which is key to ensuring stability and security in Europe. It fully supports the EU’s mediation efforts between the two parties.

We share the United States’ goal of achieving the full normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia. We hope that the announcements made today in Washington can contribute to achieving this goal.
