Damon Wilson, an American foreign policy advisor and current executive vice president at the Atlantic Council, a foreign and public policy think tank based in Washington, D.C, in an interview to Voice of America on Thursday, called for a final settlement between Kosovo and Serbia. He argued that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has a good negotiating position in terms of resolving the Kosovo issue.
Asked if Pristina has brought “game changes” by introducing the import tariff on Serbian goods, Wilson said: “this doesn’t help Pristina and I hope this will be overcome. Serbia cannot be a normal state with a European perspective and have the trust of foreign investors, if it doesn’t resolve this issue”.
“We can wait for decades, but we don’t want to, we don’t operate like that, we want to build something good with Serbia. We don’t want only to see a historical reconciliation between Belgrade and Pristina, but I also want to see a historical reconciliation between Belgrade and Washington. I want to see the Serbian President visiting the White House. I want to see the U.S. President visiting Serbia, I want to see American investments in Serbia and aid for this country and its path toward the EU”.
