David Phillips: Thaci has been cheated by Vucic and Putin
 

 David Phillips, the US foreign policy expert, has stated that Russia opposes any agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, except, as he says, of a deal that would transform Kosovo into a fragmenting state through ill-conceived border adaptations. Phillips stated that President Thaci has been cheated by Vucic and Putin thinking that border regulation is a possible option.

The allegations that Russia would support an eventual agreement between Kosovo and Serbia in the framework of the final phase of the dialogue, which would provide the country the recognition from Serbia and a seat in the United Nations (UN), is opposed by the US expert in foreign policy.

David L. Phillips, who was a senior advisor to the US State Department, told to Kosovar newspaper Zëri that Russia opposes any agreement between Kosovo and Serbia, except, as he says, an agreement that would transform Kosovo in a truncated state through ill-conceived border adaptations.

He added that the support for Kosovo's separation idea also fits to Russia's broader strategic goal, as Phillips says, this will spur divisions in Kosovo society that could result in violence, discrediting thus the Kosovo's project .

"President Thaci has been cheated by Vucic and Putin thinking that the border regulation is a possible option. This is not a solution. Border regulation will weaken Kosovo and create division in Kosovo society," Phillips says.
