The European Union still does not have a precise time for the next round of the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on normalisation of relations either at the technical or political level, Maja Kocijancic, the EU High Representative’s spokesperson tells the Radio Free Europe (RFE).
She said late on Tuesday “the work on (organising) the technical, but also the highest political level talks continue and a date should be confirmed."
Kosovo’s technical delegation chief Avni Arifi blamed Belgrade for ceasing all activities concerning the so far agreed contracts and that his side was ready to continue the dialogue, while the representatives of Serbia rejected it.
Arifi admitted Pristina was behind in drafting the Community of Serb Municipalities (CSM) statute but said “the Serbs are exclusive members of a working group and the delay is their responsibility.”
Belgrade, however, conditioned the new round of talks with Kosovo’s Government's withdrawal of 10 per cent import tariffs on goods from Serbia and Bosnia and Herzegovina.
