Serbia to recognize Kosovo’s independence on June 27?

Immediately after the June 21 elections, the new government will be formed quickly and a document confirming Kosovo’s independence will be signed, followed by a meeting with Donald Trump.

This can be deduced from the messages of the US President’s special envoy for Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Richard Grenell, who has announced that Belgrade and Pristina will continue to negotiate at the White House.

Is the end of the Kosovo issue approaching? And will Serbia sign on Kosovo’s independence? Only six days after the elections, Belgrade and Pristina will be invited by Trump to come to Washington to finally resolve the Kosovo issue. Does this mean that Vucic will have to form the new government immediately in order to sign the independence of the southern Serbian province in time?

The meeting in Washington and the resumption of dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina were first scheduled for the end of July, but Aleksandar Vucic came out with the idea about a referendum so everything was moved to June 27.

Grenell wrote on Twitter recently:”We will meet on June 27 in Washington, at the White House, to continue the dialogue.”

Kosovar President Hashim Thaci and Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti will also attend the White House meeting.

Thaci welcomed the request to resume dialogue “under the leadership of President Donald Trump and Special Envoy Richard Grenell”.

Diplomatic sources in Brussels told journalists in early June that Serbia had agreed to suspend the campaign regarding the withdrawal of recognition of Kosovo’s independence. The sources also said that Serbian authorities gave their consent in order to “contribute to a good atmosphere for the resumption of dialogue on the normalisation of relations between Kosovo and Serbia”.

“In order to create an atmosphere conducive to the continuation of the dialogue, the official Belgrade has decided not to continue with this campaign,” a diplomatic source in the EU said.

One of the senior officials of the European Union, who is in charge of the dialogue process, called this campaign by Serbia an “irritating issue”.
