Germany and the USA "clash" over Kosovo, Ambassador Rohde opposes

The Ambassador of Germany in Kosovo, Jorn Rohde, has contradicted the statement made the day before by the head of the American diplomatic mission in Belgrade, Christopher Hill, who said that Serbia's membership in the EU should not be conditional on the recognition of Kosovo's independence.

Through a post on the "X" platform, Rohde emphasized that the normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia includes mutual recognition.

Rohde also shared the news with Chancellor Scholz's statement, during his visit to Kosovo, where he underlined that it is unthinkable for two countries that do not know each other to become members of the EU.

 " Just a reminder: Read German Chancellor Scholz's clear statement during his visit to Kosovo and Serbia in June 2022 on normalization, which includes mutual recognition. This still stands: The way is there. Full implementation of the Brussels and Ohrid agreement by both sides as soon as possible" , said Rohde in X.

Hill said earlier that what Europeans are looking for is normalization and that this is the real issue according to him, to achieve normalization where borders will not be borders that divide, but borders that unite, was his message.
