An internal analysis by the European Parliament (EP) that BETA accessed on March 14 says that "there are a myriad of obstacles on the path to a comprehensive agreement between Belgrade and Pristina."

These challenges include "internal political situations and ambiguous and diversified expectations," EP analysts said in the document.

"While Kosovo is pressing on towards a very clear goal, that Serbia should recognize its independence, Serbia has interpreted the normalization process as 'an economic arrangement' leaving very limited room to go beyond it," the EP warned, arguing that "recognizing an independent Kosovo is the red line that Serbia is very unlikely to cross."

"At the same time, Serbia insists that the process needs to respect the Serbian constitution which defines Kosovo as an integral part of its territory, as well as U.N. Security Council Resolution 1244," the EP analysts added, noting that constitutional change required a referendum.
