US calls on Kosovo and Serbia to commit to peace

The White House has urged Kosovo and Serbia to put aside extremist rhetoric and recommit to peace.

In a statement on the 20th anniversary of the end of NATO’s operations which put an end to ethnic cleansing in Kosovo, White House spokesman, Judd Deer said that:

“NATO’s intervention brought an end to Milosevic regime’s campaign of ethnic cleansing, which left thousands dead and over one million civilians displaced. To pay respects to those victims, Kosovo and Serbia must recommit to a peaceful and prosperous future for all of their citizens. This requires putting aside extremist rhetoric and historical revisionism.  The two countries must engage in dialogue and redouble efforts to work toward a comprehensive agreement centered on mutual recognition and immediately remove barriers to progress”. /ibna/
