Serbian Foreign Minister Nikola Selakovic said on July 18 that he could not predict how the July 19 meeting in Brussels between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Premier Albin Kurti would unfold, but stressed that Belgrade was committed to the dialog.

Selakovic told Prva TV that  "not a shred of constructiveness" was shown by Pristina at the previous encounter, while the European officials had been fair. "We'll see what will happen, I can't predict anything," he said, recalling that Belgrade remained committed to the dialog with Pristina.

Selakovic also noted that the dialog was of paramount importance to Belgrade. He added that Belgrade also still expected the European Union to be the guarantor of the Brussels Agreement when it came to implementation.

Asked about the possibility of Greece changing its position on Kosovo's independence, he said "I want to believe" that Greece will not recognize Kosovo as independent.

Selakovic also said that he had received assurances that this was not going to happen in his meetings with Greek officials, but added that certain actions from Athens signaled a different intent.
