US Vice President urges implementation of EU-brokered deal on Kosovo

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden has urged Kosovar Prime Minister Hashim Thaci to swiftly implement a deal meant to normalize ties between Kosovo and Serbia.

In a statement issued after the leaders met on June 10, the White House said Biden had “underscored the importance of implementing the agreement fully and expeditiously to take advantage of this historic opportunity to secure peace and prosperity for the people of Kosovo and Serbia and to advance the European aspirations of both countries.”

The EU-brokered deal reached in April envisions power-sharing between municipal bodies in the Serb-majority north of Kosovo and the ethnic Albanian-led central government.
