BRUSSELS – Maja Kocijancic, spokeswoman for EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini, said in Brussels Thursday she was not familiar with a document in which Pristina had set new conditions for Belgrade, noting the EU was a facilitator in a dialogue that was currently focused on implementing agreements.

“The EC’s position is very clear: the EU is a facilitator in the dialogue on normalisation of relations between the two sides – that is dialogue and nothing else but dialogue,” she said.

Kosovo’s Minister for Dialogue Edita Tahiri has announced the third stage of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue, which she said would also be the last, would address issues including border demarcation, missing persons and a recognition of Kosovo.

The agreements reached by Belgrade and Pristina in Brussels need to be implemented within the shortest possible period of time, Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic and EU foreign policy and security chief Federica Mogherini agreed Thursday.

The implementation of the Brussels agreements is the basic condition for a continuation of the dialogue on other significant matters, Vucic and Mogherini said in a phone conversation.

They also agreed a continuation of Serbia’s European path was essential for the political as well as economic future of Serbia.
