Internationals are putting a lot of efforts that during the dinner called by the US President Barack Obama, on September 24th, Kosovo’s and Serbia’s presidents Atifete Jahjaga and Tomislav Nikolic shake hands. The consultations for the upcoming political dialogue between the two, are left to EU’s High Representative Catherine Ashton, who is addressing the issue with Hashim Thaci and Tomiclas Nicolic. She planned to meet the two in the same room, or in separate meetings.
