No results from the meeting of the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo in Brussels
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti failed to make any progress in resolving the problems between the two sides at their meeting in Brussels today, facilitated by the EU.
Kurti and Vucic met in the company of EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, following the tension that arose after the Kosovo government’s decision on the use of Kosovo ID cards and license plates by everyone, including Serbs, in the north of the country.
Speaking to reporters after the meeting, which lasted more than 6 hours, Borrell stated that they could not get a result on the process of normalization between Serbia and Kosovo.
The Kosovo government announced at the end of July that everyone living in the country, including Serbs, will be required to have a Kosovo ID card and plate. Serbs in Kosovo reacted to this and closed the border crossings in the north of the country, and tensions increased in the country.
The Kosovo government decided to postpone the implementation, which caused the crisis, until 1 September, after all the barricades placed on the roads leading to the border crossings with Serbia were removed.
Following these, NATO’s Force in Kosovo (KFOR) declared that it was ready to intervene in case of destabilization in the region.
Serbia considers Kosovo, which declared its independence unilaterally in 2008, as its territory.
