The Kosovo-Serbia dialogue continues in Brussels, the next meeting on the 10th of December

Next week, more precisely on December 10, a meeting is expected to take place between the heads of delegations, Kosovo and Serbia in the dialogue, mediated by the European Union. That was confirmed on Friday in Brussels by Peter Stano, EU spokesman for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy.

"I can confirm that there is an idea that next week the meeting will take place at the level of chief negotiators in Brussels," said Stano, not wanting to give further details about that meeting and topics that could eventually be discussed. 

It has been almost three months since there have been no high-level meetings between Kosovo and Serbia. Meanwhile, at the level of heads of delegations for dialogue, the last meeting was held on November 29 in Brussels when the parties had discussed financial and property claims between them.

The EU continues to claim that the aim of the dialogue is to reach a comprehensive agreement, through which all open issues between the parties would be resolved. According to the EU Special Envoy for Dialogue, Miroslav Lajcak, all agreements on specific topics will be part of the comprehensive agreement. Although Lajcak and EU High Representative Josep Borrel have stated that the dialogue is going well, EU diplomats acknowledge that it has slowed significantly due to the internal political situation in Kosovo.
