Vuk Jeremic: “The Washington agreement is good publicity for Trump’s presidential campaign”

The President of the People’s Party (Narodna Stranka) Vuk Jeremic, said that the documents signed in Washington by Belgrade and Pristina’s officials, which prompted a Swedish parliamentarian Magnus Jacobsson to nominate the President of the United States for the Nobel Peace Prize, are unsustainable.

On Wednesday, right-wing Norwegian politician Christian Tybring-Gjedde also nominated Trump for the prize, for peace talks between Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

Jeremic added that the event at the White House was organized only to help Trump in his campaign for the American presidential elections.

“The nomination of Donald Trump as the Nobel Peace Prize winner should not be seen outside the context of the upcoming US presidential election. His European right-wing allies are writing letters to the Nobel Committee with one goal: to get them published by the American media,” Jeremic told Newsweek, one of the most influential American and global weeklies.

Jeremic, cited by the weekly as former Serbian foreign minister and president of the UN General Assembly, noted that the two documents, without rhyme or reason and not binding, signed separately in the White House by representatives of Belgrade and Pristina, are not “neither historical nor sustainable “.

The agreements that had been signed by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti under the supervision of Trump were on separate papers and did not have identical contents, Balkan Insight reported.

“It is very clear to anyone who understands the situation in the Balkans, at least superficially. None of the open issues that existed between the two sides has been seriously addressed, ”he said.

“For Trump, it was good publicity for his election campaign, and at the same time, a good marketing move for the Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, who will announce the opening of two European embassies in Jerusalem, although I think neither Belgrade nor Pristina really intend to do so”, concluded Jeremic.

Newsweek recalls that only the United States and Guatemala have opened their embassies in Jerusalem, despite opposition from the Palestinians who, while enjoying broad international support, insist that East Jerusalem, occupied by Israel in the 1967 war, be recognized as their capital.
