The EU is working on appointing a special representative or envoy to deal with the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue directly, said EU High Representative Josep Borrell on Sunday, adding that an experienced diplomat who is well-aware of the situation in the region and is prepared to get engaged is needed for the job.

"This is a job that requires engagement 24 hours a day, every day. It's not a one-weekend issue," Borrell told Radio Free Europe.

He would not mention names but said “maybe” when asked whether that person could be someone from Slovakia.

Borrell stressed that the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina has no alternative and that it requires engagement from both sides.

"We will not dictate the dialogue. They need to talk to each other in order to reach an agreement. We can help them, create incentives, but we cannot take the place of negotiators," Borel said in Munich, where he participates in the Munich Security Conference.
