He said it should be seen as a “crucial step” toward mending the ties, which the EU has set as a condition for both countries to win membership.Kosovo will keep trying to win further recognition among nations and integration in international organizations, he said.(Updates with further integration in last paragraph)\–With assistance from Misha Savic.To contact the reporters on this story: Andrea Dudik in Prague at adudik@bloomberg.net;Jasmina Kuzmanovic in Zagreb at jkuzmanovic@bloomberg.netTo contact the editors responsible for this story: Andrea Dudik at adudik@bloomberg.net, Andrew LangleyFor more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
