Kurti's statement about Lajçak, DASH reacts: The parties take the

The US State Department praised on Monday what it called tireless efforts of the European Union Special Representative Miroslav Lajcak in the Kosovo-Serbia talks.

The comments came in response to a request by the Voice of America for a reaction about the statements of the Prime Minister of Kosovo Albin Kurti, who today accused Mr. Lajçak of bias and positions against Pristina, in last week's meeting between the parties.

Prime Minister Kurti said that he had sent letters on this issue to the main western countries while accusing Mr. Lajçak, among other things, of "distorting the process".

In a response to VOA, the DASH spokesperson did not confirm or deny whether the letter had arrived in Washington, but said that:

" We (the US) remain closely engaged with Kosovo, Serbia and EU partners in the dialogue facilitated by the European Union. We thank and recognize the tireless efforts of the EU Special Representative, Miroslav Lajçak ".

Likewise, the DASH spokesperson expressed disappointment over the lack of progress at the September 14 meeting, adding that dialogue facilitated by the EU is the only way forward for Kosovo and Serbia.

" We expect both countries to take seriously their obligations under the agreement on the road to normalization that they reached earlier this year. Time is running out. We want to see progress on existing and previous obligations based on the dialogue (facilitated by the EU) and the Ohrid agreement, including the establishment of the Association of Municipalities with a Serbian majority.”/ VOA
