The European Parliament (EP) is soon to send two letters to Serbian National Assembly Speaker Ivica Dacic, calling for a continuation of the dialogue between the Serbian authorities and the opposition as soon as possible.
Citing diplomatic sources from Brussels in its Oct. 29 issue, the Danas daily claims that Dacic will first receive a note from EP President David Sassoli, and then another from EU- Serbia Stabilization and Association Parliamentary Committee co-chair Tanja Fajon and EP Standing Rapporteur on Serbia Vladimir Bilcik.
According to the article, the MEPs messages will not only be letters of congratulations to the former Serbian foreign minister on his new appointment, but will also urge him to have the talks between the authorities and the opposition about the improvement of election conditions in Serbia be resumed under the auspices of the EP as soon as possible. “For such discussions to begin, it will be necessary for Dacic to, in the name of the National Assembly, sign an agreement with the European Parliament, which would grant the EP the role of an intermediary,” Danas reports.
According to the paper, the letters will propose that in the talks Dacic acts on behalf of the Serbian authorities while Fajon and Bilcik would represent the European Parliament.
