As Serbia delays the start of the fifth round of Belgrade-Pristina talks, the Kosovo side suggests that Belgrade just doesn’t want to sign any firm agreements.
The fifth round of Belgrade-Pristina talks scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday has been postponed as a result of procedural issues, Milivoje Mihajlovic, head of the Serbian government’s information bureau, told Balkan Insight. “The talks will be continued once the two sides agree on it,” he added.
The first round of talks, the first such dialogue since Kosovo declared independence from Serbia in February 2008, was held in Brussels on March 8 and 9.
Since then, four rounds have been held on topics varying from freedom of movement, the cadastre, civil registry books, and mutual recognition of college diplomas. Some of the open issues were supposed to be closed in the fifth round.
