HAMBURG – Many in the West are more nervous about the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue than the Serbs or the Albanians are, and I do not know why, as we must speak to each other and solve problems, which is what we are doing, says Serbian PM Aleksandar Vucic.

I do not understand why they are in such a rush or why someone wants to accelerate processes, Vucic said at the Ubersee business club in Hamburg Monday.

Presenting his take on the solution for the Kosovo issue in the context of Serbia’s EU accession, Vucic noted that setting conditions for the opening of chapters or getting a visa-free regime was not the solution because it generated an even worse atmosphere in Belgrade and Pristina, respectively.

The dispute between the Serbs and the Albanians has been going on for years and it cannot be ended through bureaucratic solutions, but a change of mentality, he said.
