It is noted that, according to the Advisor to trump on national security, Robert O'brien, a key condition for support to Kosovo is the complete abolition of duties and other trade barriers against imports from Serbia.

The special representative of the President of the United States for settlement between Serbia and Kosovo, Richard Grenell said on Monday that the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo will hold talks in Washington on 27 June. He added that if any party is not satisfied with discussions on June 27, "they will return to the status quo after you leave Washington."
