“President Aleksandar Vucic has told reporters in Belgrade that he asked US Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) ‘to help stabilize the region.’
Vucic said he asked the senator to help by asking Kosovo Albanians ‘to be prepared for genuine solutions, which mean compromise.’
The conversation with Johnson was substantial, comprehensive, and frank, the president said, and added that they discussed four topics – bilateral relations, the situation in the region, relations between Belgrade and Pristina, and support for Serbia on the road to the EU.
‘With regard to relations with Pristina, we hold different positions,’ Vucic noted, adding:
‘The United States has recognized the unilateral proclamation of independence (of Kosovo), we talked about it, and our hope is, on the tenth anniversary of the proclamation, that things will be settled by compromise.'” (B92)
