Pahor urges progress in Prishtina-Belgrade dialogue

by Cristian Florescu

Prishtina – President Borut Pahor called for headway in the Prishtina-Belgrade dialogue as he held talks in Prishtina with Kosovo President Vjosa Osmani. He endorsed Kosovo’s efforts to join Euro-Atlantic organisations and urged the country to continue adopting and implementing reforms, write

Pahor emphasised the need to implement the Kosovo-Serbia agreements reached so far and to look for a comprehensive solution in relations between the two countries.

“This could contribute decisively to all leaders of nations and countries in this part of Europe having faith and trust in the ability to take decisive steps forward in the resolution of bilateral and multilateral issues via dialogue and respect of agreements,” he said.

The talks in Prishtina came a day after Pahor held talks in Belgrade with Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić focused on the EU accession prospects of Western Balkans. Pahor said he got the impression that Belgrade thought there is a lack of political will for dialogue in Prishtina, whereas Prishtina thinks the same about Belgrade.

After the meeting with Osmani, which included the planting of a tree of friendship in front of the Presidential Palace, Pahor also discussed the situation in the region and the state of the Belgrade-Prishtina dialogue with Prime Minister Albin Kurti.

He told Kurti that permanent stabilisation, development and integration of Kosovo and other Western Balkan countries in Euro-Atlantic organisations remained in Slovenia’s strategic interest.
