EU expects lowered tensions from the new round of dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina
It is important for us that both sides stop hostile actions - said a spokeswoman of the EU
The EU says that they expect the new round of dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, which is scheduled for Thursday, August 18 in Brussels, to lower tensions, discuss all open issues and achieve progress for the benefit of citizens of Serbia and so-called Kosovo.
A spokeswoman for the EU, Nabila Massrali, told a press conference of the European Commission that Brussels is still working on the detailed agenda of the meeting between President of Serbia Aleksandar Vucic, and Prime Minister of the provisional institutions in Pristina Albin Kurti, and added that she does not want to speculate on the possible outcome of those talks.
"For us, it is important that both sides stop hostile actions, because in recent days we have seen inflammatory rhetoric and tensions, as well as that they behave responsibly. That is the point of this dialogue. They will come, they will talk and we will see what will happen," said Massrali.
When asked by European correspondents about the current situation in the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, as well as the process of Serbia's accession to the EU, the European Commission welcomed the fact that Serbia has complied with several resolutions of the UN General Assembly, "clearly condemning Russia's unprovoked and illegal aggression against Ukraine."
At the same time, it is added that, according to the adopted negotiation framework, Belgrade is expected to further gradually align with the EU common foreign policy and decisions, which, as stressed in Brussels, includes sanctions.
