Agreement reached between Serbs and Kosovars on license plates

Published in :

This is the end of the crisis in Kosovo linked to license plates used by the Serb community and not recognized by the Pristina government. Europeans and Americans have managed to wrest an agreement from the Kosovar prime minister, who is opposed to any compromise with the Serb side.

It took the full weight of Washington to subdue the Kosovar Prime Minister, Albin Kurti. He wanted to impose Kosovar and non-Serb license plates on the Serb minority in northern Kosovo.

Since August 1, Europeans and Americans have been busy avoiding clashes on the ground. In early November, the collective resignation of the Serbs employed in Kosovo had worsened the situation.

The Kosovar executive accused this Monday the European representative of making common cause with ” the serbian aggressor “, after another diplomatic failure.

Finally, the Kosovar government renounces sanctioning Serbs who drive with Serbian license plates. In exchange, Belgrade agrees not to renew expired plates, which will put an end, in a few years, to the existence of such plates.

New diplomatic battles are expected soon, with the continuation of the negotiations on the status of Kosovo and its municipalities. The two parties camp in diametrically opposed positions.
