Kosovo: Vucic-Thaci meeting in Brussels on September 7

Serbian and Kosovar presidents with EU's high representative

27 August, 11:45
(ANSA) - BELGRADE, AUGUST 27 - A new meeting between Serbian and Kosovar presidents, Aleksandar Vucic and Hashim Thaci, will be held in Brussels on September 7 in the framework of EU-mediated dialogue for the normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina. Today's Serbian media reported that the EU's High representative for foreign affairs and security policy Federica Mogherini will host the meeting as a mediator. According to the media in Belgrade, president Vucic will announce his proposals to resolve the Kosovo issue in a speech addressed to the Serbian community during his visit to Kosovo on September 8 and 9. This plan should then be submitted to a referendum in Serbia. In recent weeks the debate around this thorny issue and the final phase of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina has intensified. Local media have reported more insistently a possible official demarcation of the border between Serbia and Kosovo and an exchange of territories. Belgrade does not recognise the independence proclaimed by Pristina on February 17, 2008, and has never spoken of a border between two sovereign states, but mentioned a potential 'administrative line' separating Serbia from the 'territory' of Kosovo, that Serbia still considers its southern province, under UN administration.
