Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, who had talks Thursday in Brussels with Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti and EU representatives, said that the day was difficult and that he cannot say that it ended successfully.

“A difficult day is behind us, it was a difficult day for all Serbian citizens, for our whole country, and I cannot say that it ended successful but I refrain from all other comments, because I hope and I want to believe that it is possible to reach, by some miracle, some kind of a compromise solution in the days ahead, and that is why I will continue to fight for peace and stability,” said Vucic in a video posted on The Future of Serbia Instagram account.

He added that he will address the Serbian public in the next 48 hours and present all the facts.

“And before I address you I just want to tell you that we are fighting for our country, that we are continuing that fight and that I can’t wait to get back to our Serbia,” said the Serbian President.

Following talks between the two sides in Brussels on Thursday only European Union (EU) High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell held a press conference at which he said: “Unhappily, we did not reach an agreement today, but it is not the end of the story, both leaders agreed that the process needs to continue and the discussion will resume in the coming days.”
