After the meeting of the government, Prime Minister of Kosovo Ramush Haradinaj extended his thanks to the German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron for organising the Berlin summit. He said that although the summit was of a multilateral character, much of its focus was on normalisation of relations between Kosovo and Serbia.
Haradinaj also spoke about the upcoming meeting in Paris with the Serbian side which he said will be a very important event. “Kosovo needs to complete its format because it is not just one meeting but a dialogue and the delegation mandated by the parliament also needs to be present in the dialogue,” Haradinaj said adding: “We are entering a serious process.”
He said that the dialogue with Serbia will center around mutual recognition: “It will not be about border correction or [territorial] exchange but about mutual recognition. There is also no need to discuss the tax either. We are heading to the Paris meeting for bilateral talks and we have to continue the dialogue.”
As for visa liberalisation, Haradinaj said he received Germany’s clear support for the process. “I can safely tell Kosovo: congratulations on visa liberalisation,” he said.
