Vucic, Lajcak: Dialogue continues, implementation of agreements

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and European Union special envoy for Kosovo Miroslav Lajcak told reporters after their meeting that the Belgrade-Prishtina dialogue would continue and that everything that has been agreed has to be implemented.

Vucic told the news conference that Serbia is fully committed to continuing the process to find a compromise solution to improve Serb-Albanian and normalize Belgrade-Prishtina relations.

“We are ready to meet whenever Lajcak says. We will go to Brussels at both the highest and technical levels. We want a compromise,” he said.

The Serbian President said that the path to Europe is very important for Serbia adding that the path is defined by the progress made in relations with Pristina. However difficult the talks at times, “it’s better to have talks and dialogue than not to talk”, he said.

“I insisted only on one thing today… the full implementation of the first Brussels agreement,” he said.

Speaking after Vucic and in Serbian, Lajcak said that the goal of the dialogue is a normalization of relations between Serbia and Kosovo.

“The EU plays the role of facilitator in the process with the goal of normalizing relations but what normalization means is not up to us to decide, that is for the two sides to agree on. We think normalization is in the interest of every citizen. We are not here to force anyone to do anything,” he said, adding that he thinks good progress has been made in the past four months with agreements reached on several issues.
