A visiting U.S. diplomat on Wednesday said that finding a solution for Kosovo is a task for everyone, reiterating that the U.S. supports dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, APA reports quoting Anadolu Agency.

The remarks of Wess Mitchell, U.S. assistant secretary for European and Eurasian affairs, came during his visit to Serbia's capital Belgrade.

At a joint press conference after meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, Mitchell urged both the Serb and Kosovar sides to fulfill the obligations of the 2013 Brussels Agreement.

Kosovo -- a Serbian province -- declared independence in 2008 and is recognized by over 100 countries.

"Finding a solution for Kosovo is a task for all of us,” said Mitchell.

“The US supports the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina and will continue to do so, but it also calls on both sides to fulfill all the obligations of the Brussels Agreement," reached under European Union auspices.

Serbia began EU membership negotiations in 2014 and is seeking to join the bloc by 2025.

Its neighbor Kosovo is expected to gain candidate country status for EU membership later this year.
