Kosnett: Kosovo, Serbia to speed up normalization of relations

The U.S. Ambassador to Kosovo, Philip S. Kosnett, said on Wednesday that Kosovo and Serbia must speed up the process of normalization of relations so that the missing justice for survivors of sexual violence in conflict can finally be served.

“The bitter reality is that even 20 years later, some cases cannot be efficiently prosecuted. The survivors are not blind to this and they are right to doubt political initiatives that make unrealistic promises. In the end, some cases will be prosecuted in the country, but other cases will require cooperation with authorities from neighboring countries, which is an additional reason for Kosovo and Serbia to speed up the process of normalization of relations,” he added.
