Kosnett: Biden Administration fully accepts Washington agreement

The Ambassador of the United States of America in Kosovo, Philip Kosnett, said that they are committed to supporting the EU-led dialogue process.

Kosnett said that the administration of U.S. President Joe Biden has carefully reviewed the work done by the previous U.S. administration, and has concluded that there are many valuable items in it.
 
Asked whether the Washington agreement is the basis for the continuation of Kosovo-Serbia talks, Kosnett stressed that the Biden administration has embraced the agreement.
 
"The Biden administration has fully embraced the Washington agreement. But this does not mean that it is the only blueprint to talk about when the government of Kosovo and that of Serbia meet under the auspices of the EU, to move forward, … You have political elements that were not discussed in that agreement," he said.
 
Kosnett also commented on the latest documents that are circulating in the media about the change of borders in the Western Balkans.
 
"I do not know who is writing these unofficial documents, but whoever is writing them is probably enjoying the overreaction," Kosnett said.
 
He stressed that neither the U.S. nor European partners have any interest in encouraging or pushing any exchange of territory in Kosovo to the parties.
