Serbian Parliament Speaker Ivica Dacic has said that on April 21 he will sign the first invitation for a meeting with the opposition parties that do not want European Parliament (EP) representatives present during the dialogue between the authorities and the opposition.
“On April 21, I will sign the first invitation for a meeting with those opposition parties that do not want the presence of foreigners during the inter-party dialogue. I have also invited (Serbian President Aleksandar) Vucic, both as president and party leader, but let him decide in what capacity he will attend,” Dacic said for Happy TV.
The meeting is scheduled for April 28, at 5 p.m., he added.
“I am inviting to this meeting all parties that wish to participate in the dialogue involving EP representatives, as well as those willing to take part in both types of the talks,” Dacic also said.
He pointed out that the government has approached the matter “very seriously,” but that the EU mediators have been postponing the talks because of the coronavirus pandemic. This is the reason, according to him, why the dialogue is in a “preparatory phase,” adding that it will “probably” begin in June.
