Ahead of their meeting in Brussels after several months without any direct communication between the two leaders, Kosovo’s President Hashim Thaci said on Wednesday his Serbia’s counterpart Aleksandar Vucic was “tough to talk to,” since “he uses all his potential, all Serbia’s arsenal to dismantle Kosovo as a state," the Beta news agency reported.

In an interview with the Kosovapres agency, Thaci added he would rather sit and talk to a devil than to Vucic.

The two are set to meet on Thursday in Paris, according to an announcement from the European Union.

Thaci told the agency the meeting in Brussels would be a chance to express the necessity for reaching a peace agreement between Belgrade and Pristina.

The two will probably meet again in Paris since French President Emmanuel Macron has invited both to Paris for the ceremony marking the Remberence Day, the end of the Wptld War I, celebrated on November 11.

Their last meeting was in Brussels in July, while in September they separately talked to Federica Mogherini, the EU Foreign Policy chief and the mediator in the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on normalisation of relations.

Thaci maintains that a final agreement should include the mutual recognition between Kosovo and Serbia, while Belgrade has so far rejected to recognise Kosovo as an independent state.
