Behgjet Pacolli, Kosovo’s outgoing Foreign Minister, said on Friday that the signing of the agreement on building the motorway linking Serbia southern city of Nis to Kosovo’s capital Pristina was “a great step forward to reconciliation with Kosovo,” the KoSSev website reported.
He congratulated Serbia’s Government and President Aleksandar Vucic for securing the money to build the motorway.
"The continuation of the Nis- Merdare -Pristina road is a big step toward peace with Kosovo. Peace is the only way to build a bright future, Paccoli wrote on his Twitter account.
The motorway should have been constructed by 2020, but part of the funds was secured on Thursday from the European Investment bank.
