Kosovo-Serbia talks resume in Brussels after US economic agreement | Euronews

Balkan analyst Đorđe Bojović said the Washington talks were more about Donald Trump’s campaign ahead of November’s presidential election than securing a settlement between Kosovo and Serbia.

“It was primarily for Trump’s flagging electoral campaign, he massively needed a foreign policy win,” Bojović told Euronews.

“The so-called Washington agreement is not an agreement in itself … it clearly lacks a political framework”.

The EU has also warned Serbia and Kosovo over their U.S. talks, which could threaten the bloc’s long-held policy that broader peace negotiations over Jerusalem’s status are needed between Israel and the Palestinians.

“There is no EU member state with an embassy in Jerusalem,” European Commission spokesman Peter Stano said on Monday.

“Any diplomatic steps that could call into question the EU’s common position on Jerusalem are a matter of serious concern and regret.”

(Trump pushed for moving Serb and Kosovo embassies to Jerusalem designed to attract healthy share of absentee votes {approximately 300,000} of US citizens who live and work in Israel?)
