De facto recognition of Kosovo by Serbia this is how Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti evaluates the unsigned agreement in Ohrid, for which he accused Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vučič. Kurti said it was now up to the EU to find mechanisms to force Serbia to sign the deal.

“The basic agreement is de facto mutual recognition. So this is recognition between Kosovo and Serbia. Serbia, just like at the last meeting in Brussels, avoided signing the Agreement and now the annex. It remains for the EU to find a mechanism to make the agreement legally and internationally binding,” said the Prime Minister of Kosovo.
