European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini says she sees a “good opportunity” for Serbia and Kosovo to make progress toward normalizing relations in the coming year.

“Yes, I see a possibility for this qualitative leap to happen from now to, let’s say, the end of 2018. That is even a long run. I might expect results even before,” Mogherini said in Brussels on October 11 alongside Serbian Prime Minister Anna Brnabic.

“I think both parties are determined, do have political conditions at home that were not there before, and I see a lot of determination in achieving results,” she added.
