Serbian Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanović says Belgrade is fully prepared to begin talks with Priština about the situation in Kosovo.
He also criticized the Kosovo Albanian authorities for “doing nothing to get the dialogue started,” adding that the talks have to begin as soon as Kosovo forms a new government.
“We expect the negotiations to start as soon as possible, because we feel it is in the interest of both Serbs and ethnic Albanians to begin discussions on Kosovo’s open issues,” Bogdanović said.
Serbia will negotiate with any legitimate representatives of Kosovo Albanians, he said commenting on whether the government would still be willing to sit down with the Kosovo authorities if Kosovo’s Prime Minister Hashim Thaci was chosen to take part in the talks.
However, the Serbian government also wants the allegations against Thaci investigated, he added.
