Kosovo: An American National Interest

As with any other important negotiation, the outcome of the September 4 meeting, is likely to be a consensus which saves face for both Kosovo and Serbia and yet delivers a news-worthy headline that an agreement was reached. The agreement, albeit not final and not comprehensive, is likely to be economic in nature, whereby the US will guarantee some kind of financial support for major cross-border infrastructure projects out of which citizens of both Kosovo and Serbia will benefit.
