BRUSSELS – EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini and Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić agreed at their March 27 meeting in Belgrade to find new ways for a resumption of work and a peaceful resolution of open issues between Belgrade and Pristina, European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijančič said on Tuesday.

Kocijančič was responding to a Tanjug query whether the EU would change its approach to the dialogue considering that Pristina, in addition to arrests of Serbian officials in Kosovo-Metohija, does not comply with the agreements reached, in particular the establishment of the Association/Community of Serb Municipalities.

The EU expects “calm, wisdom, restraint and leadership to prevail” and all agreements from the dialogue to be implemented as quickly as possible, Kocijančič noted.

She gave no direct answer when asked about her take on Moscow’s support to Belgrade on the dialogue with Pristina.
