“We are working very closely with the United States in the Western Balkans, Maja Kocijancic, a spokeswoman for the European Union, told b92.net on Tuesday.

According to her, this also applies to’the question of (Belgrade-Pristina) dialogue on the normalization of relations.’

Kocijancic said this when asked to comment on Pristina officials’ calls for the US to be included in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue, as well as a US congressman’s statement that he would work to make sure the US ‘certainly gets involved.’

Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj met with the US congressman in question, Eliot Engel, in Pristina on Monday, and urged the US to help Kosovo with ‘remaining open issues.’

‘We seek America’s help, but we also promise that we will honor this assistance with the utmost care for advancing democracy, law and order, fighting crime and corruption, for a Kosovo that is free for all citizens of the country,’ Haradinaj said during a joint press conference.

Engel said that immediately upon returning to the United States, he would work with the goal of assuring Washington’s involvement “in the Balkans and Kosovo.” (InSerbia)
