The European Parliament's rapporteur for Serbia Vladimir Bilcik said that he expected the country's government and opposition to resume talks after April 1.

In a March 29 interview with the Vecernje Novosti daily, Bilcik said that due to travel restrictions over the coronavirus pandemic the negotiators would be using video conferencing technology in the next few months.

"As vaccine rollout is expedited, and we are allowed to travel again, we'll be working on-site in Belgrade. The final phase of the attempt to reach an agreement will take place face to face, as soon as possible, hopefully this summer or early in autumn. It's very important, because there should be some time left before a campaign for the next election begins," the EP official said.

Bilcik added that the inter-party dialogue was "one of key priorities" on Serbia's path to the European Unon. "I hope that all those who had refused to take part in the previous polls would take seriously this new opportunity to play an active part in Serbian politics, because the only way to achieve that is through democratic institutions. Along the same vain, those in power are responsible for improving the conditions surrounding political contests in Serbia," the EP rapporteur said.
