After the negotiations between Prime Minister Kurti and the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vui, on the license plate issue fell through in Brussels, the President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, harshly criticized Josep Borrell, calling him one-sided.
Osmani asserts that Joseph Borrell represented Serbia in this meeting by taking a position that was entirely skewed.
She said that before accusing Kurt of disrespect, Borrell need to at least bring up the failed Brussels accords with Serbia.

“Impartiality is the primary rule of any mediation procedure. What Mr. Borrell presented to us today was plainly biased, favored the aggressor, and entirely misrepresented reality. Instead of condemning Kosovo, Borrell would have mentioned to Serbia that at least some of these breaches of the Brussels Agreements occurred:
- A breach of the 2013 Agreement’s requirement that parallel illicit criminal institutions be dismantled. Instead, Vuviv is currently supporting, funding, and arming these structures with the intention of attacking Kosovo in line with Putin’s strategy;
- Failure to implement the 2013 Agreement’s Implementation Plan, which calls for both parties to pass amnesty laws. Only Kosovo has so far given its approval;
- Serbia has repeatedly incited attacks against Serbian parties that were not seen as being loyal to the government of Serbia, in violation of requirements from the 2013 Agreement linked to the staging of elections. The reports of international election observation teams have often reaffirmed this;
- The ongoing infringement of Article 14 of the Agreement, which mandates that Serbia not obstruct Kosovo’s path to Europe;
- Breaking the 2013 Agreement’s clauses 9, 10, and 11, which call for the inclusion of Serbs in the police, judiciary, etc. Furthermore, the signing of contracts with Serbia’s illegitimate institutions in recent days has resulted in egregious violations of this agreement, with no response from the EU;
- delaying the energy agreement’s implementation for about ten years;
- Failure to execute the agreement on freedom of movement due to Serbia’s restrictions on Kosovo authorities and citizens of all backgrounds entering Serbia and its rejection of documents issued by Kosovo, among other things;
- Failure to implement the justice accord by stamping the words “Republic of Serbia – Kosovo and Metohija – under the administration of the UN and Resolution 1244” on the original papers of the courts and other bodies of Kosovo;
- Failure to implement the Liaison Office Agreement by refusing to permit the parties’ agreed-upon staff growth at the Liaison Offices;
- Breaking the customs agreement, such as when Serbia continues to utilize parallel customs stamps;
- The failure of Serbia to fulfill its commitments to transmit the original cadastre papers constitutes a violation of the cadastre agreement.
- Breach of the diploma agreement, in which Serbia is likewise not making any progress;
- Breach of the Ibri Bridge Agreement, which encourages unlawful buildings to continue their illegal activity by obstructing vehicle movement;
- Breaking the terms of the regional representation agreement, trying to prevent Kosovo from participating, and misinterpreting the terms of the footnote agreement in any regional or European Union organization, whether they are governmental, parliamentary, or other level meetings;
- Failure to comply with responsibilities relating to the operation of border points;
There are more items on the list.
The pursuit of hegemonic objectives cannot be achieved through accommodation. The unambiguous objective of long-term peace, stability, and law and order throughout its territory, however, will never be abandoned by Kosovo.
