Kosovo: No progress expected in Belgrade-Pristina dialogue until the election

EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue Miroslav Lajcak announced that he had a working dinner in Brussels with Kosovo’s Executive President Vjosa Osmani.

“It is good that I had dinner with Executive President Vjosa Osmani tonight in Brussels. I appreciated hearing her views during her visit to Brussels on the situation in Kosovo, the upcoming parliamentary elections and the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina”, Lajcak wrote on his Twitter account.

Lajcak, who also met with US Assistant Secretary of State Phillip Reeker in Brussels, said there would be no continuation of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina in Brussels until the Kosovo election process is completed.

This was stated earlier by Vjosa Osmani shortly after the previous meeting with EU Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi and President of the European Parliament David Sassoli, stressing that until the end of February, until the election process in Kosovo is completed, one should not expect progress in the dialogue process between Belgrade and Pristina./ibna
