WHAT AGENDA FOR THE BRUSSELS DIALOGUE?
The Council for Inclusive Governance (CIG) organized a discussion on April 16, 2021, on the the agenda of the Serbia-Kosovo Brussels dialogue. EU’s dialogue facilitator Miroslav Lajcak said the content of the agenda depends on Pristina and Belgrade. But is it realistic for Belgrade and Pristina to agree on a common agenda? Pristina’s list includes war reparations and the pension fund, while Belgrade says issues such as the Association/Community of Serb Majority Municipalities must be on the agenda. Another question is whether the agenda should be built on the previous dialogue results. The participants discussed a range of issues that could be included on the dialogue’s agenda and offered suggestions how to make the process more productive. The EU is committed to lead the dialogue. The US has reconfirmed its support. Below is a short report.
