BRUSSELS – Implementation of all agreements should be the priority of the new phase of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue in order to enable a full normalisation of relations, says Ulrike Lunacek, the European Parliament’s vice-president and rapporteur on Kosovo.

We have to wait to see the results of the renewed dialogue, but full implementation – on both sides – of existing agreements, such as those on energy and freedom of movement, should be the priority, Lunacek said in a comment on the latest meeting of the presidents of Serbia and Kosovo in Brussels and announcements of a new phase in the EU-facilitated dialogue.

The EU should continue to insist on implementation to enable a full normalisation, she said.

The continuation of the Brussels dialogue will be difficult due to a lack of mutual trust, as well as the lack of implementation of agreements, Lunacek said.
