Vučić and Kurti in Brussels: EU demands "normalization"

Stoltenberg said on Wednesday that NATO-led security forces were ready to intervene “if stability is threatened.” Troops could also be reinforced if needed.

Borrell said on Thursday that “it won’t be necessary.” He met Kosovar Prime Minister Kurti and then Serbian President Vucic before bringing the two politicians together as part of the “Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue”. This has been managed by the EU Commission since 2011.

About a hundred countries around the world now recognize Kosovo, including most EU countries and the US. Serbia’s allies, China and Russia, on the other hand, refuse.

Serbia and Kosovo intend to join the EU. Serbia has been granted candidate status and has been negotiating since 2014. Kosovo is a “potential candidate”.
