Tonight, the European Union removed the controversial tweet in which the acting president of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, was marked as the “president of the Republic of Kosovo”, so the word “Republic” was missing in the new announcement, and only Kosovo remained, Kossev writes.
The European Union announced tonight that EU Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelji and Vjosa Osmani met in Brussels, and in front of the word Kosovo, the original announcement read “Republic”.
This detail was first noticed by some Kosovo media, stating that Brussels “removed the footnote to Kosovo” at the meeting of EU representatives and Vjosa Osmani, Kossev writes.
Shortly afterwards, the director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija of the Government of Serbia, Petar Petković, reacted on Twitter, calling the announcement of the European Union inadmissible.
“According to which agreement and when exactly did the EU recognize the so-called Kosovo?” Does that mean that dialogue is superfluous? In the EU, the law of force must never be stronger than the law of law. Serbia is not naive, we are committed to dialogue, but we respect ourselves and all signed agreements. That is why we expect a response from the European Commission, “Petkovic wrote.
Under which agreement and when exactly did the EU recognise the so-called Kosovo?!
Does this imply the dialogue to be redundant?

After that, a new post appeared on the Twitter account of the European Union, but without the word “Republic”.
Kossev reminded that the agreement on the regional representation of Kosovo, which was reached on February 24, 2012 in Brussels, envisages that “asterisk” or “asterisk” be written next to “Kosovo” and that it is the only name that will be used within regional cooperation.
It implies that in addition to the board on which Kosovo is written with an asterisk, in all accompanying documents, the text of the footnote must be mentioned at least at the first mention in each individual document, and in the footnote to state – “this inscription does not prejudge the status of Kosovo and is in accordance with Resolution 1244 and the ICJ opinion on the Kosovo Declaration of Independence. “
Kosovo uses the EU with an asterisk in its official documents, Kossev writes.
