Serbia-Kosovo: lengthy negotiations, double trilateral agreement in Ohrid
After a break of over an hour, talks resumed in Ohrid, in North Macedonia, between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, mediated by the EU high representative for foreign policy, Josep Borrell, and the EU special representative for the Western Balkans, Miroslav Lajcak. This is the second trilateral meeting of the day, which began with separate meetings of the two leaders with European mediators and with the US envoy for the Western Balkans, Gabriel Escobar, present as an observer. On the negotiating table is the proposal for a 'consolidated' agreement to normalize relations between Kosovo and Serbia. An initial agreement was reached at the end of February on the basis of a proposal made by the EU. In the meeting convened by Borrell, the implementation annex, which is an integral part of the agreement, is discussed.
