European Union officials told Belgrade-based Beta news agency that the Union expects top officials from Belgrade and Pristina to continue the dialogue on Tuesday, not start a new one.

European Commission spokesman Peter Stano said that Brussels expects Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti to discuss the way forward in the dialogue to continue the process which started in 2011. He said that this is not the old but a current dialogue with the EU mediating with both partners progressing with their European future. Stano added that the partners changed in the process but the process remains the same.

According to Stano, all the issues discussed earlier in the dialogue will be on the agenda of future meetings and are of key importance for the comprehensive agreement to normalize relations at the end of the dialogue.

Vucic and Kurti are scheduled to have separate meetings with the EU’s top diplomat, High Representative Josep Borrel and his envoy Miroslav Lajcak to discuss the proposals the two sides are bringing to the table.
