EU would like Kosovo to take part in Ohrid Summit

5/28/2013 4:12:00 PM BELGRADE - Head of the EU Delegation in Serbia Vincent Degert stated on Tuesday that the South-East European Cooperation Process (SEECP) is not covered in the Brussels agreement between Belgrade and Pristina but that the EU would like to see Kosovo take part in the gathering.

Kosovo has not been invited to the SEECP Summit in Ohrid in Macedonia, because Serbia and two more member countries filed a remark based on the SEECP Statute which envisages that the Summit can be attended only by sovereign and recognised countries and Kosovo is not one of them, 

Tanjug learnt at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Belgrade on Monday.

 When asked whether this would be contrary to the Brussels agreement, as the Kosovo president remarked to Belgrade, Degert said that, strictly speaking, the agreement does not cover SEECP. Still, he added that having the spirit of Europe in mind, the EU would like to see this attendance included as well because the SEECP structure in a way serves as a political guideline in regional cooperation. We also discussed this and we will see what happens, Degert said. Video Tanjug
