I am very happy to address you only four days after our first high-level meeting of the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue.

Sunday’s meeting was the first one after a break of 20 months. A long time. I am glad to see that the European Union is back in the driver’s seat of the process.

The second Senior Officials’ Meeting between the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the State of Kuwait and the European External Action Service (EEAS) was held virtually on 16 July 2020.

It was also an opportunity to continue the long-standing political dialogue between the EU and Kuwait on issues of common interest and concern.
