Balkans |  The leaders of Serbia and Kosovo announced that they would continue talks to normalize relations

Vucic and Kosovar Prime Minister Albin Kurti, who met with the EU’s High Representative for External Relations and Security Policy in Brussels, made statements to the local press after the meeting.

Vucic said that the meeting was very difficult, and I think there will be more meetings in the coming period. On March 18, during Borrell’s visit to the region, we decided to meet again in North Macedonia, “he said.

Emphasizing that he insisted on the creation of the Federation of Serbian Municipalities, Vucic said, “I think Corti was not ready to accept it now. We’ll see if he accepts it in the future. I hope a solution can be found, but I’m worried about falling into clauses that have to be signed and implemented since long time “. He said.

Vucic, who emphasized that all roads lead to the creation of the Federation of Municipalities of Serbia, said: “The process is not progressing as some think. This is a serious, long and difficult process. It will not be easy. Therefore, I will postpone some of my trips and responsibilities and prepare.” He rated it.

We are on the right track to normalize relations.

Kosovar Prime Minister Kurti said in a statement following the meetings he held in Brussels that they had agreed on the content of the Franco-German plan, which is the European Union’s proposal to normalize relations between the two countries.

Noting that the focus will be on implementing this plan going forward, Corti said:

“(Today’s meeting) was a confirmation that the EU proposal is acceptable and its content will not change. The next process will be linked to the implementation of the proposal. We are on the right one-way path to normalizing relations. It is an agreement that brings equality between the two parties. Symmetry is a good-neighbourly agreement. I have expressed my desire and my interest in signing this text. I think it is harmful not to sign it tonight, as we have agreed.”

Kurti also announced that high-level EU-brokered talks are scheduled for March.

Vucic and Kurti met separately and later in a trilateral meeting with Borrell in Brussels to discuss EU proposals for the normalization of relations between Kosovo and Serbia.

Serbia considers Kosovo, which unilaterally declared its independence in 2008, to be its territory.

Serbia and Kosovo, which clash periodically, are trying to find a common way to normalize relations, and eventually the two countries get to know each other, within the scope of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue process that began in 2011 with the mediation of the European Union.​
