President Aleksandar Vucic told US envoy Ambassador Richard Grenell on Thursday that a compromise solution for the Kosovo issue can be reached if Serbia’s legitimate interests are respected.
A press release from the president’s cabinet quoted Grenell as saying that both sides have to cooperate closely and quickly and look to the future. He added that the Trump administration strongly believes in economic development, the opening of new jobs and increased opportunities for trade as the key elements of securing a lasting peace. Our goal is to bring our partners in Serbia and Kosovo to a comprehensive solution to resolve flashpoints in the region, he said.
Vucic is quoted as saying that Serbia is determined to resolve relations between Belgrade and Pristina through dialogue. “A compromise solution in the interest of the stability and future of the region can be achieved by taking into consideration Serbia’s legitimate interests,” the president said.
Grenell also met with Prime Minister Ana Brnabic, the press release said.
