This information was yesterday confirmed to ‘Blic’ by Borislav
Stefanovic, Chief of Belgrade negotiating team with Pristina that Ricker
is going to meet with.
The Deputy Assistant for the Balkans of the USA Secretary of State
Hilary Clinton shall also have talks with President Tadic’s advisors.
Agreement between Belgrade and Pristina over regional presentation of
Kosovo is one of the most important conditions set to Belgrade for
giving of the candidate status for the EU membership.
These meetings are only a part of intensified American-German diplomatic
initiative aimed to take Belgrade and Pristina to necessary agreements
as soon as possible. Recent visit by Kosovo Foreign Minister Enver
Hodzaj to Berlin where he met with German Foreign Minister Guido
Westervelle was within that initiative.
After yesterday’s video conference with Robert Cooper, the EU mediator
in negotiations, Borislav Stefanovic said that ‘solution over regional
presentation of Pristina has not been found yet’.
‘Negotiations over regional presentation of Kosovo are going on. I
cannot confirm that we are close to agreement because every option that
Belgrade is ready to accept includes the UN SC Resolution 1244, while
Pristina is insisting on its irrelevance.
Visit by the USA official to Pristina is aimed to support the dialog and
diminish negative influence of growing extremism’, Stefanovic said.
According to his words ‘the USA has not said anything precisely
regarding the Resolution 1244 until so far’. ‘I do not understand what a
permanent member of the UN SC could have against resolution it
adopted’, Stefanovic added.
No partition of Kosovo/Metohija
