Belgrade and Pristina to push through EU deal

After the two delegations failed to agree an action plan, the Serbian Prime Minister said the EU-led deal will be finalised following direct meetings with his Kosovo counterpart.

Serbia’s Prime Minister, Ivica Dacic, said an action plan to implement the Brussels-led agreement on Kosovo will be completed in seven to ten days through top-level dialogue.

Dacic and his Kosovo counterpart, Hashim Thaci, are to meet in Brussels on May 21.

The summit comes after the Serbian and Kosovo delegations failed to agree on Wednesday on ways to implement the EU deal brokered in April.

The deal envisions that the local Serbian community in Kosovo will choose its own police commanders, while the composition of the police generally will reflect the ethnic structure on the ground. The draft also proposes more judges coming from the Serbian minority.
