Belgrade and Pristina again fail to reach an agreement in Brussels

Talks under the auspices of the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue regarding Kosovo’s decision to ban the use of the Serbian dinar held on Thursday in Brussels failed to produce an agreement.

A bilateral meeting between the head of the Serbian Government Office for Kosovo and Metohija, Petar Petkovic, and European Union (EU) Special Representative for the dialogue Miroslav Lajcak was held on Thursday morning in Brussels, which was then followed by a trilateral meeting.

A joint meeting of the two parties was expected, especially after Lajcak’s announcement that he is organizing the meeting in order for an agreement to be reached.

The Pristina delegation was led by its chief negotiator Besnik Bislimi.

This is the fourth time in just over a month that talks between Belgrade and Pristina, mediated by the EU, have been held in Brussels regarding the ban on the use of the Serbian dinar in Kosovo.

On March 25 Lajcak said that the chief negotiators of Kosovo and Serbia presented their proposals regarding the Central Bank of Kosovo (CBK) regulation banning the use of the dinar in Kosovo and that the discussions helped to “clarify important details.”

Petkovic said following the March 25 meeting in Brussels that Pristina lacks the political will to find a solution to the dinar issue.
