Name proposal was apparently just a joke at first

Under the mediation of the US special envoy for Serbia and Kosovo, Grenell, an agreement on economic rapprochement was recently concluded, which was signed in the White House in early September . It also provides for a feasibility study to "partition" the disputed lake to which both Kosovo and Serbia are claiming.

Grenell recently said on a US talk show that his proposal to name the lake after Trump was originally a joke. "There was this incredible argument about the name (of the lake), which is why I jokingly said, 'I'll just talk about Trump Lake,'" said the former US ambassador to Berlin . However, the Serbian and Kosovar heads of government immediately jumped on it and declared that they were in agreement with such a renaming.

There has been a dispute over the reservoir for years. Three quarters of the water is in Kosovar territory and is an important drinking water reservoir for around a third of the Kosovar population. Most of the cooling water for the Kosovar coal-fired power plants is also taken from the lake. Serbia, on the other hand, regards the lake as its state property.

Kosovo broke away from Serbia in 2008. The government in Belgrade still does not recognize the independence of its former province.
