The United States Deputy Assistant Secretary of State, Matthew Palmer, addressed the citizens of Kosovo during a ceremony in downtown Pristina celebrating the 20th anniversary of NATO troops deployment in Kosovo. Palmer said he feels proud that NATO intervened in Kosovo to stop Milosevic’s genocide. He added that 20 years later, Kosovo must work more on dialogue with Serbia towards mutual recognition between the two countries. “On this anniversary, we remember many soldiers that gave their lives on duty. Today we reconfirm our pledge to build peace and prosperity. Pristina and Belgrade must work together on behalf of all victims. The United States of America are close to Kosovo and encourage its progress. Kosovo and Serbia must continue dialogue towards mutual recognition between the two countries,” Palmer said. Koha quotes Palmer as saying now is the best time for Kosovo and Serbia to reach an agreement. “There is no better or more convenient time than now. Greece and North Macedonia recently reached an agreement and this was achieved by far-sighted leaders and by forgetting conflicts from the past. Kosovo and Serbia will always be neighbours and both countries must unblock their European prospects and focus on stability and progress,” he said.
