February 28 (SeeNews) - Serbia and Kosovo have agreed to discuss the implementation of the European Union proposal for normalisation of relations, EU's foreign policy chief, Josep Borrell, said following a meeting of Serbia's president Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo's prime minister Albin Kurti.
Talks on the implementation of the Agreement on the path to normalisation between Kosovo and Serbia will continue at a meeting expected to be held in March, Borell said in a Twitter post late on Monday after the meeting.
The Monday meeting was facilitated by Borrell and Miroslav Lajcak, the EU special representative for the dialogue for normalisation of Belgrade-Pristina relations.
The next meeting between Vucic and Kurti should take place on March 18 in North Macedonia, Vucic said in a statement published by the Serbian government on Monday.
"I insisted on the creation of a Community of Serb Municipalities, as did the European representatives. Kurti was not ready to accept it now, whether he will in the future, we will see," Vucic said.
In a post on Twitter, Kurti said that both sides agreed on the EU proposal, but the Serbian side was not ready to sign it.
"I offered to formally sign, but Serbia wasn’t ready," Kurti said.
The EU proposal consists of 11 points intended to normalise relations between Belgrade and Pristina relations. The document also obliges the two countries to implement all past dialogue agreements.
In December, ethnic Serbs in Kosovo blocked the roads to the border with Serbia with demands for the establishment of a Community of Serb Municipalities, as agreed by the governments of Kosovo and Serbia in 2013. Tensions eased after the release of a former policeman whose arrest had sparked the protests.
The government in Belgrade does not recognise the independence of Kosovo, which broke away from Serbia in 2008.
In December, Kosovo submitted its application to join the European Union. It is also aspiring to join NATO.
