PM in Spain: Serbia will insist on implementation of agreed deals with Kosovo Izvor: Tanjug/Vlada Srbije/Slobodan Miljević

Ana Brnabic, Serbia’s Prime Minister, tells reporters in Spain, where she is on an official visit, that the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue cannot resume until the import taxes are in place, the FoNet news agency reported on Wednesday.

The Premier said the taxes which Kosovo introduced on goods from Serbia and Bosnia last November, did not only prevent the flow of goods but was in contradiction with the Stabilisation and Association Agreement (SSA) that Kosovo signed with the European Union.

As the state RTS TV reported, Brnabic unofficially met with the future EU head of diplomacy and current Spanish Foreign Minister Josep Borrell.

The two will later meet again, and Brnabic says she expects “friendly talks about bilateral relations and the resumption of the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on the normalisation of relations.”

After an official meeting with Borrell, Brnabic said he told her his priority if he became the EU chief diplomat would be a final solution of the Kosovo issue and that he would have a balanced and unbiased attitude.

 Spain did not recognise the independence of Serbia's former autonomous province of Kosovo, due to its internal issues with autonomous regions of Catalonia and Basque Country. Madrid is one of five EU countries' capitals that did not recognise Kosovo as an independent state.

Brnabic also said she would insist on the implementation of all agreed deals and that Belgrade wanted to go back to what was signed in the 2013 Brussels Agreement.

“The Union was the guarantor of the agreement, and Pristina hasn’t implemented anything from it. I expect the EU to guarantee what it has signed,” Brnabic said.

While in Spain, she will address a “Quo Vadis Europe” conference organised by the Menéndez Pelayo Univesity and will speak about “New European Enlargement.”
