Serbia and Kosovo have reached an agreement on the issue of entry and exit documents for their citizens, EU diplomat Josep Borrell said on Twitter.
“As part of the dialogue with the participation of the EU, Serbia agreed to cancel the entry/exit documents for holders of Kosovo ID-cards, and Kosovo agreed not to introduce them for holders of Serbian ID-cards,” — wrote Borrell.
He emphasized that Kosovo Serbs, like other citizens, will now be able to move freely between the country and the partially recognized republic using an ID card (similar to an internal passport).
According to Borrell, the EU has just received appropriate guarantees from Kosovo's Prime Minister Albin Kurti.
Serbia and Kosovo were close to an agreement earlier on Saturday, after Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic announced that Belgrade was ready to agree to Kosovo's demands. At the same time, he stressed that this would not be a recognition of Kosovo's independence.
Vučić also stated. that Serbia expects EU guarantees that Kosovo Serbs will be able to freely enter and exit using Serbian documents.
