Despite an attempt to refute The Pavlovic Today’s news report on Article 10 on ‘Mutual Recognition’ presented in a document at Serbia-Kosovo talk, our news report has been verified.
Yesterday, during the first round of Serbia-Kosovo meetings, The Pavlovic Today has been informed by the source close to the Serbian presidency that the Serbian president Aleksandar Vucic has been presented with the document by which he was supposed to recognize Kosovo’s independence.
Richard Grenell responded to our news report by saying “not true” on Twitter.
Ksenija Pavlovic Mcateer refuted Richard Grenell by saying: “I stand by my reporting. Mutual recognition effectively means recognition of Kosovo.”
Controversial Article 10 The Pavlovic Today obtained de facto presupposed Serbian recognition of Kosovo :
No.10 Article in the document state: Both parties commit to MUTUAL RECOGNITION and protection of ethnic minorities, restitution of propriety, resolving the status of stateless individuals, and agree to open offices in charge of protecting and reporting annually on minority rights.
Interestingly, after we broke the news and our reporting has been officially verified, Article 10 on ‘mutual recognition’ has now been removed.
“People from the Trump administration were fair, they listened to what we have to say and the Article  talking about ‘mutual recognition’ is no longer in the document”, President Vucic confirmed.
As Serbia-Kosovo talks continue into Day 2, President Trump is scheduled to meet the delegation at the White House for the signing ceremony and the round of trilateral meetings.
This makes for a historic moment where, for the first time in modern history under the American leadership, a mutual agreement on economic development will be reached; a positive step toward a détente between the Serbs and Albanians.
