USA-EU must engage on reducing tension between Kosovo and Serbia

The latest political developments in the relations between Kosovo and Serbia threaten to mine all achievements made so far in the dialogue brokered by the European Union for the normalization of relations between the two countries.

Tension between the two countries has mounted following the request made by Serbia for French authorities for the extradition of the leader of AAK, Ramush Haradinaj in Belgrade.

The US Congressman, Elliot Engel has reacted about these developments by demanding from the US and EU to be engaged in normalizing relations between Kosovo and Serbia.

“The US and EU must hold Serbia responsible for this abuse with the role of Interpol. Serbia’s integration in the EU must be suspended until it delivers its obligations for the normalization of relations with Kosovo”, declared Engel following a meeting with the president of Kosovo, Hashim Thaci.

Engel has called on French authorities to process this case as soon as possible and allow Haradinaj to return to Kosovo. /balkaneu.com/
