TANJUG_maliVIENNA – The Belgrade-Pristina dialogue should be continued constructively as that can help to convince sceptical EU member states that further steps need to be taken on Serbia’s EU path, says Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz, who will pay an official visit to Serbia on Monday, Serbian news agency Tanjug reports. 
“The two high-level meetings, on January 24 and February 1, have contributed to an easing of tensions. Also, the agreement on the controversial North Mitrovica wall is an important integral part of the renewed dialogue,” Kurz told Tanjug in an interview.

“To fully implement the agreements from the dialogue, it is not only a revitalisation and reopening of the Mitrovica Bridge that is necessary, but also the establishment of the Community of Serb Municipalities,” Kurz said.

Kurz will also be visiting Belgrade in his capacity as the OSCE Chairperson-in-Office.
