A meeting between the heads of delegations of Kosovo and Serbia in the framework of the dialogue, mediated by the European Union, is taking place in Brussels on Thursday. Officials from the European Union did not provide details about this meeting, arguing that it is at the level of experts and that the EU in such cases does not provide details. But what has been confirmed by the European Union is that the topic of today's meeting will be issues related to the financial and property claims that the parties have against each other. The delegations will first meet separately in bilateral meetings with EU Special Envoy for Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak and then have a joint meeting.
This form has already become common in the rounds of dialogue in Brussels. The December 10 meeting comes after a break during which there were no meetings. The EU continues to claim that the aim of the dialogue is to reach a comprehensive, legally binding agreement, in line with international law and EU standards, through which all outstanding issues between the parties would be resolved.
According to EU Special Envoy for Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak himself, all agreements on specific topics will be part of the comprehensive agreement. The EU-mediated dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia started in 2011 in Brussels.
