The United States also launched new initiatives to improve relations between Pristina and Belgrade, which culminated in September with a meeting in Washington, D.C., during which agreements were signed in the areas of economy and other areas, Tanin noted. “Of course, the most important conditions for the success of the negotiations are political unity, strong commitment and goodwill among heads of state and government, both in Pristina and Belgrade, and sustained international support,” he stressed, also stressing the importance of women`s participation in the peace process at all levels, especially in the ongoing dialogue between the two sides. Kosovo pays great attention to the Albanian minority in Serbia. The Serb Albanian minority has spoken out in favour of more rights, in line with the rights of Serbs in Kosovo. In 2013, Isa Mustafa, then one of the opposition leaders in Kosovo, said, in reference to the Brussels agreement: “Once the programme for implementing the agreement is completed, Kosovo and Serbia must open a discussion on the issue of the rights enjoyed by Albanians living in Presevo and Serbia.”  There is no point in holding elections without significant support on the ground. If the North is firmly fought, there is a risk of violence against the organizers and polls that demand vigorous protection from KFOR would be of little use. Belgrade and Pristina must explain in detail what the agreement means for northern Kosovo. You should take the necessary time to prepare the soil. On 7th September Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovar Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti met in Brussels for talks organised by Josep Borrell under the auspices of the European Union.
 At a press conference following the talks, Miroslav Lajcak, THE EU`s Special Representative for the Serbia-Kosovo Dialogue, said that “full progress” had been made in the areas of economic cooperation, missing persons and displaced persons.   Vucic and Hoti will meet again in Brussels on 28 September 2020, where they will discuss agreements for minority communities, the settlement of claims and mutual financial assets and try to move towards a broader agreement.  The German representative deplored the fact that the Serbian delegation never referred in its statements to the crimes committed against the Kosovar population in 1998 and 1999, including ethnic cleansing and mass deportations. “Our Serbian friends are shooting themselves in the foot,” he said, adding that Belgrade is also trying to become a member of the European Union. The International Court of Justice has ruled that Kosovo`s declaration of independence does not violate international law, which means that it should be fully recognized. He called on both sides to work towards a legally binding and comprehensive agreement that guarantees stability and allows both sides to become members of the European Union. In other words, the Serbian leaders signed an agreement in Washington to pursue the following goal: the creation of the so-called “Serbian world”, which would be composed of Serbia, northern Kosovo, Republika Srpska and Montenegro.
