Serbia and Kosovo have agreed how Kosovo can present itself in diplomatic meetings of the western Balkan states <...>
The agreement was reached today (24 February) after two-and-a-half days of talks in Brussels <...>
The compromise foresees that Kosovo's nameplate in diplomatic gatherings will contain a footnote making reference to Resolution 1244 of the United Nations Security Council of 1999 (as demanded by Serbia) and to a ruling by the International Court of Justice from 2010 (a Kosovar demand).
The footnote to the name 'Kosovo' will read: "This designation is without prejudice to positions on status, and is in line with UNSC 1244 and the ICJ Opinion on the Kosovo Declaration of Independence."
Belgrade up until last weekend insisted the full text of the footnote be displayed on Kosovo's name plate, while Pristina wanted it to read just Kosovo*.
In a statement Sunday, Belgrade conceded that the "footnote is not obliged to be on the (Kosovo) plate" but only to be quoted "at least at the first mention (of Kosovo) in all documents" issued at the meetings.
