Miščević: Opening of chapters depends on dialogue with Pristina

TANJUG_maliBELGRADE - The green light for opening new chapters in Serbia's EU accession talks by the end of the year will depend on a progress report on the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, Serbia's chief EU negotiator Tanja Miscevic said Tuesday.

Speaking to reporters in the Slovak embassy in Belgrade, she said a report by the European External Action Service on implementation and monitoring of agreements in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue was due by the end of 2016.

“That will be an assessment that will give, or not give, the green light for opening chapters by the end of the year,” Miscevic said.

Opening negotiations on chapters 5, 25 and 26 by the end of the year remains Serbia’s objective, she said.

Serbia has major support for this from Slovakia, which holds the EU presidency, and excellent cooperation with the EU and the European Commission, she said.
