US will not interfere in a deal between Serbia and KosovoAdriatic Journal 24 August 2018
John Bolton, White House’s national security adviser, has said in Kiev the United States will not engage in a debate on the idea of exchanging territories between Serbia and Kosovo. It does not, however, rule out the possibility of border correction. “There are new signs that both governments very quietly may be willing to negotiate on this. The U.S. policy is that if the two sides can work it out and reach an agreement, we won’t exclude territorial corrections. It’s really not for us to say”, Bolton said in a response to a question from Radio Free Europe. He added that Washington will not interfere, and he doesn’t think that “anyone in Europe would stand in a way if the two sides in the dispute achieve a mutually satisfactory solution”. Bolton concluded that the United States is ready to help, but it’s up to Serbia and Kosovo to agree on a solution between themselves.
