EU Special Envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak will be visiting Pristina on May 11 and Belgrade on the 12th to assess the implementation of the latest agreements reached in Brussels and to prepare follow-up steps and meetings, Brussels has announced.

The envoy is expected to sit down with the leaders of Serbia and Kosovo as well as with the chief negotiators, and is currently planning the latter.

The visit will be Lajcak’s first since Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti met in Brussels on May 2 and adopted the Declaration on Missing Persons, but made no progress regarding the Community of Serb Municipalities.

Pristina rejected the draft statutes for the Community presented in Brussels by the Management Team and disbanded the team the following day, explaining that the body had fulfilled its mandate by composing and presenting the draft.

The Management Team comprised four members of Kosovo’s Serb community nominated by Serbia and formally named by the government of Kosovo.

The European Union opined that, by disbanding the Team, Kosovo violated the spirit and the letter of the agreements reached in the dialogue, because the Team should remain active until the statutes for the community of Kosovo municipalities with an ethnic Serb majority are adopted.
