(ANSA) - BELGRADE - Kosovo President Hashim Thaci said the United States will be committed to ''reaching the final agreement'' between Pristina and Belgrade. Speaking to the Voice of America Broadcasting Service in Albania after meeting with US Vice President Mike Pence in Washington, Thaci confirmed the direct involvement of US leadership in the final phase of the agreement. ''I can confirm that Vice-President Pence has clearly said that the United States will be involved in reaching the final agreement (with Belgrade). The same vice-president Pence will work personally on this process'', Thaci said, local media reported. This involvement, he underlined, guarantees the success of the whole process that will ''help Kosovo reach the final agreement on normalization and reconciliation with Serbia'', opening the way to ''Kosovo's accession to the United Nations''. Accordint to Thaci, ''all this will put an end to a long and very dangerous status quo in Kosovo and the whole region'', Serbia does not recognize Kosovo's unilaterally proclaimed independence, and Pristina and Belgrade have been engaged for some years in a EU-mediated dialogue to reach a normalization of relations.
