It was not easy for the Government, Aljbin Kurti, or Aleksandar Vučić, because decisions and things are difficult to think about while trying to make an agreement, but I feel progress, the American Ambassador to Serbia Christopher Hill said today in Presevo.
He added that, in his opinion, one of the most important elements of all this is the fact that Pristina should establish the Union of Serbian Municipalities.
Of course, there are other things that Kosovo needs to do, but I think that all this leads to a better situation with the European Union, and this can actually be seen as an agreement between Pristina and Brussels, said Hill and added that “the same can be said for the Serbian side”.
I think that Vučić wants to normalize relations with Kosovo, as well as the relations between Belgrade and Brussels, added Hill, who believes that representatives of Brussels have “a lot of credit” for this agreement.
The question is what is the best way to order. Do people want to complain about problems that have not been solved, or do they want to see possible solutions in the future. I think a lot of people are worried about how this is going to end, but instead of worrying, why not support the people who made these tough decisions, Hill said.
He pointed out that it is clear that the USA 100 percent supports what the European Union wants to do.
We have very capable diplomats, but I want you to know that we are not participants, nor part of the agreement between Serbia, Kosovo and the European Union, but we are part of this process and will be very involved, and it is clear that everything that has been agreed must be implemented, Hill said.
He added that many countries have problems with which they have to fight and that he expects the same from Serbia.
I think the Serbs are clearly showing the direction they want to go. If it was towards Russia, I am not sure that they would get on the good side, Hil pointed out.
He said that his visit to Presevo is important and expressed his willingness to help solve the problems he heard about today in Presevo and yesterday in Bujanovac.
I will return to Belgrade and let me think and see what I can do to be useful. “It’s very important that people understand what the issues are, and I think I’ve been clear about that,” Hill said.
