BRUSSELS – Spokewoman of EU Maja Kocijančič stated that EU does not comment on views of certain parties in Belgrade – Pristina dialogue. In addition, she called out Pristina to revoke tariffs, so that through negotiations in the dialogue could be found a comprehensive legal solution for relationship between Serbia and Kosovo.

It was her only comment on the reporter’s question to say if the EU does not consider a punch and break of the dialogue, the platform adopted by Kosovo’s Assembly by which negotiations have to bring reciprocal recognition, the withdrawal of the Resolution 1244. Additionally, the Community of Serbian muniplicity cannot have executive rights.

As Kocijančič pointed out imposing taxes on the goods from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina was not helpful for making essential conditions for dialogue, reiterated the EU, US and other partners request for abolishing the taxes.

High Representative Federica Mogherini underlined that the agreement between Belgrade and Prisitna has to be in line with international law in order to recieve the support of EU and all the member EU states.

General Secretary of the President of Republic of Serbia, Nikola Selaković early sad that Belgrade does not expect any significant reaction from Brussels, due to the fact it had not been it before as well.

“So far, we have not seen any kind of reaction. I would like that there is some, anyone reasonable would like that. I would like to be suprised by their positive reaction, but previous facts say to contrarsy”, Selaković concluded.
