An USA NGO proposed opening of a permanent military base in the South-East Europe, reconciliation with Serbia and restoring of the USA reputation in this part of the Balkans. According to David Wilson, who is the Vice President of the Atlantic Council, these actions are aimed at positioning of the USA as real mediator for achieving of progress in the region.
Recently, a representative of the US Department of State advised the government of Serbia that it would be hard to achieve results if they continue to sit on the fence between Russia and Europe.
Wilson thinks that the USA shall take part in the organization of a direct dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina. He pointed out that “The European Union will continue to play very important role as a mediator, but the Americans shall not stand on the sidelines. We must have a role and must help the dialogue to reach constructive results.”
