In the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina in Brussels, which was continued at a high level yesterday, it was agreed that all problems be settled in peace, respecting each other, and guaranteeing the safety of citizens. This was said by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic after the trilateral meeting with Hashim Thaci and EU High Representative Federica Mogherini, who again met for the first time since March 23.

President Vucic emphasized that this agreement will be respected by both parties and that this is an important message for Serbs in Kosovo, but also for all citizens of Serbia because ‘there are issues that we do not have answers.’

‘There would be a question about what if somebody starts to occupy the north of Kosovo during the summer, what would be our answer, whether it would be military, or have another ‘Storm’ or ‘Flash’,’ Vucic said.” (translated from Politika)


“Soccer’s international governing body says it has initiated an investigation into reports of apparent politically tinged celebrations by two ethnic-Albanian members of Switzerland’s World Cup squad.

FIFA, which bans all political messages or symbols in stadiums, on June 23 said the two players could be banned for two games if found to have violated regulations.

Switzerland on June 22 defeated Serbia 2-1 on goals by Granit Xhaka and Xherdan Shaqiri, both of whom are ethnic Albanians.

The two players made a gesture that evokes the double-headed eagle of the Albanian flag after scoring goals in the match in the Russian city of Kaliningrad. Both men have roots in Kosovo, a former province of Serbia that declared independence in 2008.” (RFE/RL)
