McAllister: Time to open chapters with Serbia


STRASBOURG – The European Parliament rapporteur for Serbia David McAllister has urged European institutions to acknowledge the progress in the dialogue on the normalisation of Belgrade-Pristina relations by opening the first chapters in the negotiation process with Serbia.
It is time to open the negotiation chapters with Serbia, McAllister said in a brief speech at the EP plenary session in Strasbourg on Monday.

He reminded MEPs that two weeks ago, in a dialogue facilitated by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, the prime ministers of Serbia and Kosovo finalised agreements on crucial issues, including an agreement on the Community of Serb municipalities.

McAllister said that it must be acknowledged that the agreements reached in the last round of the Brussels talks represent significant progress in the process of normalisation of the Belgrade-Pristina relations.
