Mogherini: Serbia, Kosovo leaders prepared to continue working on normalization of relations


EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini met Wednesday with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo President Hashim Thaci at the sidelines of the European Union-Western Balkans Summit in Sofia, in the context of the continued facilitation of the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue.

“The two leaders confirmed their readiness to continue working intensively with the High Representative to reach a comprehensive normalisation of relations, a key element for the transformation of the whole region,” the European External Action Service says in a press release.

It adds, “Given the priority the EU attaches to its relations with the Western Balkans, in particular this year, it is important that definitive progress is made in the coming period, so that both Serbia and Kosovo can advance in their European aspirations.”
