Belgrade’s requirement is accepted by Brussels. Miroslav Lajak, the EU’s special envoy for dialogue, stated that “there would be no deal between Kosovo and Serbia without the formation of the Association of Communes with a Serb majority.” The Serbian Public Television, RTS, stated this, citing the statements of the EU mediator in an interview after meeting with President Aleksandar Vucic.
“The European Union’s proposal emphasizes normalization rather than capitulation. The objective is not for anyone to win or lose. The goal is to find a favorable condition that will allow the parties to enter the European Union.”
Addressing the meeting in Ohrid, North Macedonia, Lacjak outlines the goal of reaching an agreement with strong European Union support. On Saturday, Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti is scheduled to meet with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic, mediated by the EU’s High Representative, Josep Borrell, with the main goal of determining a clear path for implementing the European plan for ties normalization.
Pristina’s Prime Minister has made no preconditions and has stated willingness to approve the plan, while previously confirming that the 15 models given by Lajak for the formation of the organization are being evaluated.
