Former German ambassador to Pristina, Ernst Reichel, who is Chancellor’s Angela Merkel envoy for the Balkan, has praised the accession of Kosovo in the International Olympic Committee and the participation of Kosovo in the conference for Regional Cooperation in Belgrade organized by the European Commission.

“Accession of Kosovo in the International Olympic Committee and the participation of two ministers of Kosovo at an equal level with their counterparts in a regional meeting in Belgrade, show that Kosovo and Serbia are in the process of normalizing their relations”, said the German diplomat, Reichel.

In other words, according to him, the political dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia is yielding results.

“Where are the political analysts and other critics today?”, said Reichel alluding to those who criticized dialogue and the lack of real jubilation about yesterday’s two developments. /ibna/
