Borrell: The Kosovo-Serbia meeting expected to be held on May 11

The dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia is expected to continue on May 11 in Brussels, said the High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Josep Borrell.

He made the announcement during a press conference with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic. The Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, is also expected to travel to Brussels on Tuesday.

The Kosovo-Serbia dialogue process started in 2011 with talks on technical issues, while in 2012 it evolved into political talks to normalize relations between the two countries, with high-level political representation between the prime ministers and presidents of both countries. 

During the ten years of the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, it is believed that over 30 agreements have been reached, although the authorities in Pristina and Belgrade speak with different figures about these agreements.

Among the agreements reached is the one for the Association of Serb-majority municipalities, for the formation of which, there is already a dispute between the parties that have reached it.

The European Union aims to reach a comprehensive agreement in which all issues between the two countries would be resolved.

After a suspension of almost 2 years, talks between the two countries during 2020 had resumed, but they were again interrupted due to the elections in Kosovo that were held on February 14.
