President Trump arranged for Serbia and Kosovo (which used to belong to Serbia but which was taken from them by president Clinton and the UN) to get along. The leaders of Serbia and Kosovo agreed to normalize economic relations in a meeting at the White House with President Trump on Friday, with the Muslim-majority nations also notably agreeing to closer ties with Israel.
As part of the historic U.S.-backed breakthrough in relations between the Balkan states, Serbia “committed to opening a commercial office in Jerusalem this month and to move its embassy to Jerusalem by July.”
Kosovo announced formal recognition of Israel.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić and Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti joined Trump at the signing ceremony in the White House on Friday.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu welcomed the move, saying “Kosovo will be the first country with a Muslim majority to open an embassy in Jerusalem,” according to Reuters.
Last month Trump brokeredthe institution of diplomatic ties between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) last month.
The administration is pushing to have more countries formally recognize the Israel, the Jewish State, particularly Arab and Muslim nations that have held off normalizing relations absent a political solution establishing a Palestinian state.
