TANJUG_maliBELGRADE – The top-level dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina will most likely resume in the last week of January, Tanjug learns.

Previously, it was agreed in principle that the next meeting between the two prime ministers should take place in mid-January, but Kosovo PM Isa Mustafa has said that for Pristina this is conditional on visa liberalization.

Meanwhile, according to Tanjug’s sources, associates of the EU’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini will come to Belgrade on January 13 to help break the latest impasse caused by the unwillingness of Pristina, which has been facing a political blockade for months due to the opposition of certain political groups to the implementation of the Brussels deal.

On January 18, the two sides could be expected to meet at the expert/technical level in Brussels, and then at the level of PMs in the last week of January.
