Kosovo agrees to stop attempts for membership in international organizations for one year, and Serbia agrees to stop its derecognition campaign for the same period of time.

They pledge to declare Hizballah a terrorist organization; Kosovo has already done so. Israel pledges to recognize Kosovo.

Both countries agree to prohibit the use of 5G equipment provided by untrusted vendors.

They pledge to protect religious minorities, in particular the Serbian Orthodox Church in Kosovo, and push for decriminalization of homosexuality in countries that haven’t yet done so.
