Kosovo-Serbia dialogue will continue

Parliament PRISTINA, Kosovo — The EU backed negotiations of the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia in Brussels will continue. This was decided by a majority of members of the parliament of Kosovo. The talks are said to concern only technical issues of both countries. Mentioned topics are car plates, civil registry books, customs, energy and further more. The Kosovar oppositional Movement for Self-Determination (Vetevendosje) tried to stop the talks with an parliamentarian intervention, but only reached the support of 21 MPs. The nationalist movement of MP Albiun Kurti in general opposes negotiations with Serbia since years.

In this particular case  Kurti complained, the talks would only support Serbia’s EU candidate status, whereas no improvement will be achieved for Kosovo. 

Meanwhile the head of the Serbian negotiation team, Stefanovic, caused doubts concerning the seriousness of Serbias negotiation approach: Reportedly Stefanovic intends to visit Prishtina before the next meeting in Brussels. At the same time Stefanovic insisted – against Kosovo Deputy Prime Minister Kuci – for this not to need an invitation from the Kosovar government as to the non-recognition of Kosovo by Serbia.
