Leading officials of Serbia and Kosovo will meet in Paris early in July to continue efforts to find a way to get the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue moving forward, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic told reporters after the Berlin Summit on Monday night.
“We had a series of difficult meeting and as a delegation we should thank German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron. They were rational and tried to find a solution to stabilize the dialogue,” Vucic said.
He said that official Belgrade’s only condition to continue the dialogue was the revoking of the 100 percent tariffs on Serbian goods. “Some people thought the dialogue is more important than the tariffs,” he said and added that Merkel and Macron wanted the tariffs revoked.
The Serbian president said he was surprised by the fierce attacks against the Republika Srpska entity in Bosnia-Herzegovina by the Kosovo Albanians and Bosnia-Herzegovina Council of Ministers Chairman Denis Zvizdic. “The Albanians said that we have to recognize Kosovo, that there is no autonomy for the Serbs, that there can be no Republika Srpska in Kosovo, no executive powers for the Community of Serb Municipalities,” Vucic said.
Vucic said the summit ended with the conclusion that talks should continue with the mediation of the European Union, Germany and France.
