Serbia and Kosovo Sign Historic Deal at White House

Agreement also involves relationships with Israel.

On Friday, President Trump oversaw the signing of an agreement between Serbia and Kosovo that normalizes economic relations between the two nations. The Belgrade-Pristina deal was signed by their two leaders, Serbian President Aleksander Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti, in the Oval Office of the White House, where President Trump described it as a “major breakthrough.”

“Truly it is historic,” President Trump said. “I look forward to going to both countries in the not too distant future.”

In what the president called a brave move, Kosovo agreed to recognize Israel, while Serbia agreed to move its embassy to Jerusalem.

Even though the European Union had spent more than a decade mediating talks between the two nations, it took President Trump to broker the deal according to Serbia’s president who praised the president’s actions and said, “We haven’t resolved all our problems, but this is a huge step forward.” Kosovo’s prime minister agreed, adding “This is a great moment for the region.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • With thanksgiving for the efforts of President Trump and his Administration in securing an agreement that marks the beginning of a new relationship between Serbia and Kosovo.
  • That the inclusion of relationships with Israel as part of the newly-constructed deal would increase Middle Eastern peace.
