Pristina pledges to create Community of Serb municipalities in Kosovo – Serbian leader

Aleksandar Vucic said that it is not yet clear whether they are results or not

BELGRADE, March 19. /TASS/. Pristina has made a commitment to start forming the Community of Serb municipalities in Kosovo, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said after the 12-hour EU-mediated talks with the prime minister of the unrecognized Kosovo republic, Albin Kurti.

"It is of great importance for us that the creation of the Community of Serb municipalities, in accordance with previously reached agreements, was named as a priority obligation. I must say that I’m really glad for that," he said. "We made our red lines known. I think, we made a step forward. I believe that Pristina will comply with its agreements, or will start complying with them, because it was noted that Pristina should immediately begin the creation of the Community of Serb municipalities in Kosovo and Metohija."

The Serbian leader added that he would make an address to the nation on Sunday to inform the public about details of the talks.

The Brussels agreements on the normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina dated April 19, 2013 envisage the establishment 0f the Community of Serb Municipalities - a self-government body of Serbs living in the unrecognized republic of Kosovo. Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic has repeatedly stressed that his country has fulfilled its part of the Brussels agreements whereas the Kosovars only began to work on the Community’s charter but later suspended this work.
