President Jahjaga met with Baroness Catherine Ashton

President of the Republic of Kosovo, Mrs. Atifete Jahjaga, met today in Alpbach, Austria, with the EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security, Baroness Catherine Ashton, with whom she discussed the European perspective of Kosovo and of the region, as well as the dialogue process and normalisation of relations between Kosovo and Serbia.

President Jahjaga and Baroness Ashton emphasized the importance of the continuation of the dialogue process between Kosovo and Serbia, which will help in bringing closer both countries to EU and will contribute to the peace and stability in the region and easing of the lives of citizens of both countries.

President Jahjaga stated that Kosovo remains dedicated to the dialogue, as it views it as the only path towards normalisation of relations between two countries, but pointed out that all agreements reached at the dialogue process in Brussels must be implemented in its fullness. She said that implementation of agreements must help the free movement of all the citizens of Kosovo, and with the creation of the new institutions of the country, all the necessary conditions for the continuation of the dialogue will continue.

President Jahjaga also said that European perspective of Kosovo and the region must remain open, as this will also help the completion of the internal reforms. She stated that Kosovo has made an considerable step ahead in its European path after the initialling of the SAA, but potentiated the need for the conclusion of the visa liberalisation process, which will enable the free movement of the citizens of Kosovo in EU countries, as is the case with all the other countries of the region.

EU High Representative for Foreign Policy and Security, Baroness Catherine Ashton, said that the Balkan region, inclusive of Kosovo, has made advances in the last few years, but more work is required in fulfilment of required standards on the integration process. She also said that dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia must continue, as this will help the normalization of relations between the two countries.
