Serbia: Vučić met with Lajčák

EU Special Representative for Belgrade-Priština Dialogue and other regional issues in the Western Balkans, Miroslav Lajčák, had a meeting with Aleksandar Vučić in Belgrade on Wednesday.

President of the Republic of Serbia said on Wednesday, following the talks with Miroslav Lajčák that Serbia is committed to a dialogue with Priština and is ready for its continuation, and that it supports the efforts of reaching a solution without ultimatums and imposed resolutions.

President Vučić pointed out that Serbia supports the activities, efforts and intentions of Miroslav Lajčák to reach a solution through a policy of compromise, without ultimatums and imposed resolutions. He also stated that Serbia participates in agreements and negotiations in good faith, seeking understanding for its state and national interests, and not only for the national interests of Albanians.

“In accordance with that, we believe that compromise and agreement mean – not everything for all and enough for everyone. It is our obligation to be responsible, serious and engaged. It is important that Serbia does not set deadlines because it is much more important that we make an agreement and that both sides are satisfied with it”, President Vučić said.

President Vučić also pointed out that Serbia will insist on the full implementation of the signed and accepted agreements from Brussels, noting that Serbia has fully effected all its obligations.

He thanked Miroslav Lajčák for his commitment, adding that he is always welcome in Serbia.

EU Special Representative for Belgrade-Priština Dialogue and other regional issues in the Western Balkans Miroslav Lajčák said that he had come to say that EU member states have no interest in maintaining the status quo and are ready to bring the Belgrade-Priština dialogue process to a successful conclusion as soon as the two sides are ready for it.

“EU member states expect the dialogue between Belgrade and Priština on the comprehensive normalisation of relations and all open issues to continue constructively and in good faith”, Lajčák said, adding that EU members expect the two sides to implement everything agreed within the dialogue process in the last 10 years./ibna
