US urges Kosovo to be flexibile in dialogue with Serbia

Washington urges Pristina to be flexible in seeking a deal with Serbia on its representation at regional meetings – but Prime Minister Thaci has his own public opinion to consider.

Washington has urged Kosovo to be flexible in finding a solution to the dispute with Serbia on its participation in regional meetings.

US Deputy Secretary of State Bill Burns left Kosovo on Saturday without addressing the press after meeting political leaders and Serbs clerics and signing a military agreement.

A press release issued later by the US embassy said Burns had urged Kosovo to compromise with Belgrade in the EU-led dialogue.

“As the United States and our European partners have said many times, we are asking both sides to be flexible and creative to ensure that both Serbia and Kosovo are able to participate in regional fora. Both sides must find a formula with which they can be comfortable,” he was quoted as saying.
