U.S. Ambassador to Serbia Mary Warlick has stated that Washington “strongly supports Serbia in its EU integration”.
She also stressed that the dialogue between Belgrade and Priština “is very important and expected to result in great progress in the coming months”.
When asked why a partition of Kosovo “was acceptable to Washington in the 1990s and not now”, she responded that she saw “no reason to look back”.
“As far as the U.S. is concerned, the status and the borders of Kosovo have been settled,” said Warlick.
“However, the U.S. does recognize Serbia’s special interest and relations with the Serbs living in Kosovo, as well as in terms of the monasteries and cultural heritage there,” she added.
