US lawmaker, Elliot Engel, who is also chairman of the Committee for Foreign Affairs at the House of Representatives, had a meeting in Belgrade with the president of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic.
The US embassy in Belgrade released a statement saying that the American lawmaker and the Serb president discussed the process of dialogue with Kosovo, the achievement of long-term peace and stability in the Balkans and the fact that justice must be done for all victims of war in Kosovo.
After the meeting, the Serb president said that “the continuation of talks is important for the stability of the entire region and for the relations between Serbs and Albanians”.
After his visit to Belgrade, Engel is also expected to visit Presevo Valley, a region in the south of Serbia which is inhabited by mostly Albanians.
Afterwards, he’s expected to visit Kosovo where he will attend the celebrations which are expected to take place on the occasion of the US Independence Day and the inauguration of the new US embassy in Pristina.
Mr. Engel is known as one of the biggest friends of Albanians and a fervent supporter of the solution of the Kosovo issue. /ibna/
