Miroslav Lajcak, the European Union's special representative for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue, said on Nov. 18 that a new round of his dialogue with the two sides' chief negotiators, held on Nov. 16, was useful to making progress on several issues and that the talks would resume again soon.
"I plan to continue the talks in coming days and weeks," Lajcak wrote in a review of the previous week in a post on Facebook. "We discussed number of topics - the Statute [of the Community of Serb Municipalities], the Implementation plan, Energy, License plates, Elections and Missing persons," Lajcak wrote on Facebook.
He recalled that he had visited Pristina recently and met with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Belgrade's chief negotiator Petar Petkovic, early last week, in "a continuation of our efforts to advance the implementation of the Agreement on the Path to Normalisation" of relations between Serbia and Kosovo.
Like the talks in Pristina, Lajcak reported, the talks in Belgrade included other urgent matters in the EU-mediated dialogue, with an emphasis on a speedy solution and preparations for a new round of the talks between the chief negotiators that took place on Nov. 16. Lajcak, also the European Union's special representative for the Western Balkans, mentioned Montenegro, too, stating that he had met with new Montenegrin Foreign Minister Filip Ivanovic in Brussels soon upon his return from Belgrade.
