Serbia has agreed to allow holders of Kosovo identity papers to enter the country without any additional documents. In return, Kosovo dropped plans to make it more difficult for Serbian citizens to enter the country in the near future.

Borrell spoke of a “European solution”. The Spanish politician also wrote: “We congratulate both leaders (Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo’s Prime Minister Albin Kurti) for this decision.” Serbian Prime Minister Kurti also replied shortly afterwards on Twitter: “Reciprocity should be the spirit of fundamental solutions.” Vucic initially had no reaction.
