BELGRADE, March 21 (Itar-Tass) – All members of Serbian government support further dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina to normalize bilateral relations, Serbian Vice-Premier Aleksandar Vucic told a cabinet of ministers meeting on Thursday.
“The sides should find a solution, constructively and without external pressure, that will secure the existence and peaceful life of the Serbian population in Kosovo & Metohija and will open a European perspective to Serbia,” Vucic emphasized. Only a fair resolution of problems in this southern province, he said, can guarantee sustainable stability in the entire Balkan region.
“I hope that we will reach an agreement with Pristina,” the vice-premier said, adding that the Kosovo authorities should demonstrate the same readiness to compromise as the Serbian side. He also confirmed Serbia’s commitment to the European path and integration into the European Union.
The 7th round of negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina was held in Brussels on Wednesday. No agreement was reached. However, Prime Ministers Ivica Dacic and Hashim Taci managed to reach a “certain compromise”.
The next round of negotiations is scheduled for April 2.
