Deputy Assistant Secretary Gabriel Escobar testified before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on U.S. engagement in the Balkans. He highlighted the Biden Administration’s policy in the region, emphasizing the importance of ensuring that the door to transatlantic institutions remains open for Balkan countries. The United States is working with European partners to support the countries of the Western Balkans in implementing reforms necessary for European Union membership. One of the major challenges in the region is the relationship between Kosovo and Serbia. Escobar mentioned the EU-facilitated Agreement on the Path to Normalization of Relations, which was agreed upon in February and March. Implementation of the agreement is underway, and discussions have begun between the Serbian president and Kosovan prime minister on the Association/Community of Serb-majority Municipalities. The United States is actively engaged in supporting this process and encourages both Kosovo and Serbia to normalize relations to unlock their full potential and progress on their EU paths.
In Bosnia and Herzegovina, Escobar noted the years of dysfunction and division that have hindered progress. Ethnonationalist political leaders often prioritize personal and political gain over the public good. The United States is working to strengthen the international community’s efforts to uphold the Dayton Peace Agreement and support the implementation of reforms that will advance Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Euro-Atlantic aspirations. Escobar expressed concerns about Republika Srpska tyrant Milorad Dodik’s secessionist actions and stated that the United States will cooperate with European partners to deter such behavior. Escobar also mentioned positive developments in the region. Montenegro is making progress in its European integration, with recent presidential elections running smoothly. Albania and North Macedonia have opened EU accession negotiations and are supportive partners in the normalization process between Serbia and Kosovo. Both countries are NATO Allies. North Macedonia has committed to enacting a constitutional change to recognize its Bulgarian minority, a step strongly supported by the United States. Escobar highlighted the importance of cybersecurity in the region, particularly in light of Iran’s cyberattacks on Albania. The United States has provided approximately $50 million in cybersecurity assistance to Albania’s civilian and military sectors.
In conclusion, Escobar expressed appreciation for the continued interest and engagement of Congress in the Western Balkans. He welcomed questions from the committee. But wait, we’ve got Aleksandar Vučić and Milorad Dodik, two self-proclaimed tyrants who seem to have a knack for holding on to power. But let’s not forget the real question here: how on earth are they still in power Mr. Escobar?
