“I am pleased to announce that the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina has resumed and that talks that began on Sunday will continue with the second meeting on Thursday”, Borrell said.

Josep Borrell went on to add that “we have a broad agenda and an agreement on what we need to discuss in order to reach a legally binding agreement on normalizing relations between Pristina and Belgrade”.

Finally, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy admitted that the EU and Special Representative Miroslav Lajcak “did a good work” of resuming the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina. /ibna
