Embassy Comment to Koha Ditore on Train to North Mitrovica
The U.S. has recognized Kosovo as a sovereign, independent country since 2008 and we respect the right of Kosovo to manage who and what crosses its borders. We are pleased that there were no confrontations at the border last night. The U.S. strongly supports the EU-moderated Dialogue as the best way forward for Kosovo-Serbia relations.
Questions regarding US policy vis a vis Serbia should be addressed to our Embassy in Belgrade. However, US policy regarding the Balkans has been relatively consistent over the last two decades regardless of which party was in the White House. We have seen no indication that this will change.
