Stano: A new round of meetings of the chief negotiators of Kosovo and Serbia is expected to take place

The spokesman of the European Union, Peter Stano, confirmed for Radio Free Europe that next week, respectively on November 16, a new round of meetings of the chief negotiators of Kosovo and Serbia is expected to take place, to discuss the implementation of the agreements reached so far.

 European officials have denied allegations that the dialogue has stalled due to disagreements over the implementation of the Association Agreement.

The Government of Kosovo and the President of this state, Vjosa Osmani, have said that Kosovo will not implement the agreement as it is contrary to the Constitution of Kosovo.

"As a general rule, we do not comment on various statements and comments. Instead of such statements we are focused on achieving results and dealing with issues by working hard. "Dialogue is not blocked and continues with the daily work of the Special Representative for Dialogue, Miroslav Lajcak, not only with the two sides, but in the wider region and in the international arena," said EU spokesman Peter Stano.

Kosovo and Serbia, under the mediation of the EU, have reached an agreement on the establishment of the Association of Serb-majority municipalities in 2013.

Two years later, the two countries reached an additional agreement on its establishment, but the Constitutional Court of Kosovo found that the principles for it are not in accordance with the Constitution of Kosovo, although it said that they can be harmonized with an act of the Government of Kosovo. The dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, mediated by the European Union, started in 2011.
