The Brussels agreement was signed in 2013, it must be implemented and cannot be transferred to some other agreements, Prime Minister of Serbia Ana Brnabic told Tanjug today in Singapore.

She in this way commented on the alleged proposals coming from the international community, reported in some media, about the de-escalation of the situation in the north of Kosovo and Metohija, prominent among which is the demand that the establishment of the Community of Municipalities (ZSO) with a Serb majority - whose formation is already provided for in the Brussels Agreement - should be discussed within the framework of the French-German plan to solve the Kosovo issue.

The prime minister stressed that the Brussels Agreement is the first agreement on normalization and that it must be implemented.

"That has already been agreed on, it has already been signed and its implementation is guaranteed by the European Union. You cannot say, 'Belgrade has fulfilled all the agreements from the Brussels Agreement, and what Pristina has not - well, what can you do', that is not fair," the prime minister pointed out.

According to her, on the line here is all of EU's credibility.

"The signature of the high representative of the EU is on that document, I don't know how we can even discuss such things and I hope this is fake news or semi-information, because it would not make any sense," Brnabic said.

The prime minister added that she has no knowledge regarding the allegations carried by the Albanian press that an agreement on de-escalation in the north of Kosovo and Metohija has already been reached, and will be announced on Friday.

When asked if there is room for dialogue under these circumstances, Brnabic replied that she does not see it.

"I'm no optimist, I don't know what kind of additional agreement could be reached, considering that Pristina violated all the agreements that were reached before and that we only ask for the signed ones to be respected. I know that President Vucic is doing his best, I know also that he is in constant communication with the Serbs of Kosovo and Metohija and that he is trying to find a solution that would further ensure peace and stability in our region," the prime minister pointed out.

Certain media in Albanian are publishing what they say are non-papers, but also allegedly exclusive information that an agreement has been reached in principle regarding de-escalation of the situation in Kosovo and Metohija.

Pristina's Koha has published another alleged non-paper, this one regarding the ZSO, which, as this media outlet says, is an accompanying legal document to the French-German proposal.

As a solution to the deadlock in the formation of the ZSO, the document states the adoption of a new law so that Pristina's obligation from the first Brussels Agreement to establish the ZSO would be implemented through the Assembly, not the government.
