The German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, expressed hope for a successful conclusion to the negotiations between Kosovo and Serbia. “Germany and France have made a strong proposal, which is supported by the European Union and the United States. In this context, I expect this process will be completed successfully soon “Scholz stated this during a press conference following a meeting with Prime Minister Edi Rama in Berlin.
According to the previously announced 11-point proposal, the parties would establish regular good neighborly interactions on the basis of equal rights.
Both parties will recognize each other’s documents and national emblems, such as passports, diplomats, license plates, and customs stamps. According to point 3, both parties will be guided by the United Nations Charter’s goals and principles, particularly those of sovereign equality of all states, respect for their independence, autonomy, and territorial integrity, the right to self-determination, human rights protection, and non-discrimination.
Furthermore, it is highlighted that, in accordance with the United Nations Charter, the parties shall resolve any conflicts between them solely by peaceful means, with no threat or use of force.
Albin Kurti, on the other hand, has repeatedly stated his willingness to sign the deal, while Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has stated that he has no intention of signing the European plan for repairing relations with Kosovo.
