The future status of Kosovo was the main issue discussed at the meeting of the EU Troika with the Russian Federation, held on 13 February 2008 in Brdo, Slovenia. Benita Ferrero-Waldner, Member of the EC in charge of External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy, insisted strongly on the need to convince Russia of the European position. Javier Solana, Secretary General of the Council of the EU and High Representative for CFSP, drew the attention to the other priority on the political agenda: extended cooperation between the EU and the Russian Federation.
