Escobar's clear position: "Talks on formation of Community of Serb Municipalities must begin"
He reiterated that the US position is that the previously reached agreements should be implemented, including the formation of the ZSO
US special representative for the Western Balkans Gabriel Escobar said today in an online conference for the media in the region that the US expects implementation of all previously signed agreements between Belgrade and Pristina and that during the upcoming meeting between Belgrade and Pristina on August 18 in Brussels, the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities (ZSO) should be a topic.
"Talks on its formation must start, as US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken told Albin Kurti during his recent visit to Washington," Escobar said, according to Tanjug.
He reiterated that the US position is that the previously reached agreements should be implemented, including the formation of the ZSO.
"So we want to see a discussion on that topic when the two sides meet," Escobar said in response to a Serbian journalist who asked whether the US has a mechanism that could force Pristina to implement the agreement on the formation of the ZSO.
Escobar added that he hopes that after this meeting there will be progress in implementation of this agreement as well as the agreements on missing persons and energy.
He said that the US sees the future of Serbia and so-called Kosovo in the EU, and in that sense supports the efforts of the EU to facilitate dialogue between the two sides.
