"The support of the United States to achieving lasting peace and stability in Kosovo is of paramount importance. There are many challenges that are ahead of us, but we have to solve the challenges only through dialogue. Unilateral actions and moves do not improve confidence building. I am particularly concerned about the arrest of our returnees, as is the last case of the arrest of Zoran Djokic, "Minister Jevtic emphasized during the meeting today and stressed that he must strive to build mutual trust.
Otherwise, this is the fourth official meeting of Dalibor Jevtic with Mr. Palmer.

It was concluded that the joint work of all relevant institutions is of paramount importance in order to achieve the desired results.
