Kosovo: Lajcak kicks off his Western Balkans tour from Pristina

EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue and Other Regional Issues in the Western Balkans, Miroslav Lajcak, kicks off a three-day visit to Kosovo as part of a tour of the Western Balkans in the first week of March.

The EU Special Representative will start his visit to Kosovo from March 1 to March 3, then visit Serbia from March 3 to 4, and finally visit Montenegro as part of his regional mandate from March 4 to 5. According to the EU Office in Kosovo, Lajcak intends to meet with the political leadership of all three Western Balkan partners, as well as with representatives of the European Union.

Vetevendosje Movement leader and prime ministerial candidate Albin Kurti confirmed Lajcak’s visit to Pristina.

This is the Special Representative’s first visit since the end of the early elections in Kosovo on February 14, where the Vetevendosje Movement reportedly won more than 47% of the vote and is expected to form the next government. Albin Kurti, in a statement to the media, noted that the EU-facilitated dialogue with Serbia is not among his top priorities./ibna
