BRUSSELS – Catherine Ray, spokeswoman for the EU high representative for foreign affairs and security policy, said Monday that the latest round of talks in the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina was underway and focused on four topics – energy, Telekom, community of Serb municipalities and freedom of movement over the bridge in Mitrovica.
Ray also said that the talks had started in the morning by High Representative Federica Mogherini holding bilateral meetings with the two prime ministers.
Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic said yesterday that the Serbian delegation was leaving for Brussels in the hope that it would resolve the most important issues facing the Serbian people in Kosovo-Metohija.
Kosovo Prime Minister Isa Mustafa wrote on his Facebook page today that it was in the best interests of Kosovo and its citizens to successfully finalize agreements with Serbia in several areas, with facilitation of the EU and support from the United States.
The talks are expected to result in reaching an agreement on the framework and principles for the establishment of the community of Serb municipalities, which should give the community executive powers, something opposed to by Pristina.
