Dialogue with Serbia must be unconditional, says Kosovo’s Thaci

Dialogue with Serbia must be unconditional and tariffs on Serbian imports must remain in force.

This was declared today by Kosovo’s president, Hashim Thaci following a meeting with a Franco-German delegation.

The president said that the meeting also discussed the visa liberalisation process, stressing that citizens of Kosovo must not be kept isolated.

“Kosovo must not be imposed new criteria for the liberalisation of the visa regime”, Thaci said.

The president said that Kosovo remains committed in order for dialogue to be finalized with a peaceful inclusive agreement which would lead to mutual recognition of the two countries and Kosovo’s accession in the UN.

The French delegation is made up of Alexandre Adam, deputy adviser of the French president, Thomas Bertin, chief of mission for the Balkans at the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and ambassadors Didier Chabert and Carole Blestel-Feffer.

The German delegation is made up of Matthias Luttenberg, head of the division for Bilateral Relations for Middle East and South Europe, Christian Hellbach, Special Envoy for Southeast Europe and Turkey at the German Foreign Ministry, and also the German ambassador, Christian Heldt. /ibna/
