The EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue and other regional issues in the Western Balkans, Miroslav Lajcak, kicks off a three-day visit to Kosovo as part of a tour of the Western Balkans in the first week of March.
The EU Special Representative will begin his visit to Kosovo from 1 March to 3 March, then visit Serbia from 3 to 4 March and finally visit Montenegro as part of his regional mandate from 4 to March 5. According to the EU Office in Kosovo, Lajcak intends to meet with the political leadership of the three Western Balkan partners, as well as with representatives of the European Union.
The leader of the Vetëvendosje Movement and candidate for prime minister Albin Kurti confirmed Lajcak’s visit to Pristina.
This is the Special Representative’s first visit since the end of the snap elections in Kosovo on February 14, where the Vetëvendosje Movement reportedly won more than 47% of the vote and is expected to form the next government. Albin Kurti, in a statement to the media, noted that the EU-facilitated dialogue with Serbia is not among his top priorities.
