BRUSSELS – Belgrade and Pristina will continue technical dialogue on the implementation of the Brussels Agreement, tomorrow in Brussels.

It is envisaged that the talks will last for two days, and the full implementation of all the achieved agreements, as well as the implemention of the yet unimplemented agreements from the Brussels Agreement will be discussed, but the key issue to be discussed will be the formation of the Community of Serb Municipalities.

Expert delegations from Belgrade and Pristina, led by the head of the Office for Kosovo, Marko Đurić, and Pristina’s chief negotiator Avni Arifi, one of the closest associates of Kosovo Prime Minister Ramush Haradinaj, will continue talks that were canceled on January 16 because of the murder of Oliver Ivanović in Kosovska Mitrovica.

Sources from the European Commission for Tanjug say that the talks of the two sides are expected to be constructive and result-oriented in the implementation of the agrements.

It is reported that on the first day will be discussed issues such as the implementation of the freedom of movement agreement and license plates, the management of administrative crossings and the implementation of a judicial arrangement.

Two open issues – the establishment of the Community of Serb Municipalities and energy sector should be on the agenda of the second day of the meeting in the building of the European External Action Service in Brussels.
