The US Administration under President Joe Biden said that Kosovo and Serbia should commit to implementing the Agreement on economic normalization reached on 4 September 2020 at the White House. The agreement was framed by the administration of former President Trump.
Leader of the Vetevendsje, Albin Kurti, when in opposition stated that the Washington Agreement will not be sent for ratification at the Assembly if his party comes to power. Recently the Government’s spokesperson, Perparim Kryeziu, has stated that the agreement is not legally binding.
The Ujman/Gazivoda Lake is mostly located in Kosovo’s territory but almost 20 percent of it is part of Serbia’s territory. This artificial lake was accumulated decades ago by the “Iber Lepenci” company, back when Kosovo was part of Yugoslavia. After the end of the war in 1999, there was a lot of tension caused about the lake as Kosovo considers it as its own property, while Serbia claims its ownership since part of it is in Serbia.
