A new round of Belgrade-Pristina dialogue will be held today in Brussels, and European Commission spokeswoman Maja Kocijancic said that Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo President Hashim Thaci, with the mediation of the EU Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini, will continue work on a comprehensive normalization of relations and to achieve of a legally binding agreement.

For now, it is still not known whether the Kosovo President will attend, as the Pristina side has not confirmed its arrival, so the continuation of the dialogue is questioned.

The meeting between the President of Serbia and the Kosovo President is scheduled for 9:00 am in the building of the European Service for External affairs.

On the eve of a new round of dialogue in Brussels, they said that the intensive work of the so-called, "second phase" continues, but the EU as a mediator does not want to speculate about possible results of the meeting and the details of the possible solutions.

- The second phase started a year ago. The dialogue is intensified at this stage between the presidents, and that's how it continues - said the spokeswoman of the European Commission.

There is a growing interest in meeting Vucic and Thaci among the representatives of local and foreign media.

Many foreign media expect that today's meeting could bring concrete results due to frequent European reactions to possible solutions to the "Kosovo issue". 

The European Commission, however, announces that it is only another one in a series of meetings where attempts to reach a compromise solution will be considered.

The head of EU diplomacy Federica Mogherini, who is a mediator in the dialogue, thinks that there is a "real chance for Vucic and Thaci to reach an agreement that will solve all open questions between Belgrade and Pristina".

- We have to do everything we can with our partners in Europe, region and the international community, especially in the UN Security Council, to support these negotiations through dialogue and within the international community," concluded Mogherini.
