The U.S. has prepared a special package to be presented to Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic in the next few weeks, according to Belgrade daily Vecernje Novosti.

The working "Kosovo text" designed by the US might be discussed on upcoming visit of the U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs Wess Mitchell to Serbia, Novosti has reports. The Vecernje Novosti daily says the document proposes broader executive powers for the Association of Serb-majority Municipalities which was reached during the EU-facilitated dialogue in Brussels. Also the document proposes for Serbs to have wider authority in education, health care and culture.

According to his plan the Association would maintain close institutional cooperation with a Kosovo deputy prime minister elected from the Serbian community, who would control the work of the Association. In return Belgrade is expected to allow Pristina to join international organizations, the daily writes. Vecernje Novosti citing diplomatic sources reported that the U.S. decided to make the move finding Brussels quite “inert” about Kosovo.
