European Union High Representative Josep Borrell said on July 19 that the high-level round of the Belgrade-Pristina dialog in Brussels would build on the headway already made and focus on making further strides to develop the dialog and pave the way for a "European future" for Serbia and Kosovo.
It can happen if the two sides reach agreement on normalization of relations, which is their call, not the EU's, Borrell said ahead of a meeting between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Premier Albin Kurti.
Borrell said this was the second high-level dialog session since Kurti became Kosovo premier and described the first meeting as not quite successful, while expressing hope that the second one would produce more results.
He added that it was essential to maintain regular contact, which showed dedication to regulating relations between Belgrade and Pristina. It is necessary to Kosovo and Serbia to finally close this chapter of their tortured past by achieving a comprehensive and legally binding agreement on normalizing relations in the effort of securing a European future for their citizens.
