The EU for several years has facilitated the Dialogue and was aiming reaching of a final agreement between the two countries and continuation of the European path. But the United States has taken a leading role after appointing Ambassador Richard Grenell, as a special envoy on Dialogue. In a statement posted on Twitter on Monday Grenell said that has invited representatives of Kosovo and Serbia at Washington on 27 June to resume the dialogue.

The EU Office in Kosovo says that they cannot comment on the activities of others.

Spokesperson of the EU Office in Kosovo, Dinka Zivalj, told Gazeta Express that Lajcak will be in Pristina on Tuesday to discuss modalities and bring dates for the resumption of the EU-facilitated Dialogue.

“Unfortunately, Mr Lajcak’s flight from Zurich got cancelled. We are working on ensuring that he will be able to be in Kosovo with the slightest delay possible. Mr Lajcak is committed to be in Kosovo by tomorrow. Once on the ground, he will meet with his interlocutors to discuss timing and modalities for a swift resumption of the Dialogue,” Zivalj said.

Asked on the dialogue mediated by the US, the EU Office said: “We do not comment on the activities of others. EUSR Lajčák will be in Pristina tomorrow to discuss modalities and he brings dates for the resumption of the EU-facilitated Dialogue, a process which has delivered very real results for the people in Kosovo since its beginning,” Zivalj said. /GazetaExpress/
