The third EU-mediated meeting for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue between Kosovo PM, Albin Kurti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has ended in Brussels with no concrete results.
The new watchword being touted in the dialogue is ‘compromise’, but after years of imbalance and concessions it is one Kosovo would be well advised to resist.
EU Special Representative for the dialogue Miroslav Lajcak has expressed his support for Vetevendosje’s governing priorities and stated that the dialogue would continue following meetings with Vjosa Osmani and Albin Kurti.
Overshadowed and lacking an obvious purpose, the Brussels based dialogue resumed in 2020 in the interest of the EU, Serbia... everyone except Kosovo.
Twenty years after a key UN resolution called for women to take up keep roles in peace building processes, women remain shut out of Kosovo’s all-male team handling the dialogue with Serbia.
