Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic (L) and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti (R) with European Union High Representative Josep Borrell and EU envoy Miroslav Lajcak, Brussels, Belgium, February 27, 2023
In my weekly review on Poland’s TVP World, I discuss ongoing tension between Serbia and Kosovo, and analyze the significance of Finnish President Sauli Niinistö’s visit to Poland in the context of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
The other guest is İlkan Dalkuç of Turkey’s Daktilo 1984.
Watch from 16:35:
First, we discuss Monday’s visit of NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg to Kosovo, amid a flare-up in violence between Kosovar police and Serbs in the north of the country.
The immediate violence has ebbed, but until you get a settlement between the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo, you always have the possibility that it can revive between local groups.
Then, evaluating Finnish President Niinistö’s two days in Poland, I talk about the historic changes in Europe spurred by Vladimir Putin’s decision to attack Ukraine in February 2022.
