The EU's special representative for the Serbia-Kosovo dialogue, Miroslav Lajcak, announced on Sept. 17 that expert-level talks between Belgrade and Pristina had finished, that they were about mutual financial claims and property, and that they had demonstrated the complexity and sensitivity of those issues.
"Just finished today's talks with the chief negotiators Marko Djuric and Skender Hyseni on mutual financial claims and property. Our discussions confirmed the complexity and sensitivity of the issue. To be continued," Lajcak tweeted.
During the talks, the heads of delegations of Belgrade and Pristina, Marko Djuric and Skender Hyseni, first had separate meetings with the EU mediators and then had a new round of trilateral talks.
Djuric has stated that the Serbian delegation insisted on the subject of the Community of Serb Municipalities being put on the agenda, and that Pristina opposed that. Hyseni stated after the meeting in Brussels that there were no discussions of the Community of Serb Municipalities at all, Kossev has reported.
