Top officials from Belgrade and Pristina will meet twice with European officials both face to face and via video link later this week.
Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti will meet via video link for a conference hosted by French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday, the French president’s cabinet said in a press release on Monday. It added that the video conference will be co-hosted by the European Union.
Vucic and Hoti will travel to Brussels on Sunday for a face to face meeting organized by the EU’s top diplomat High Representative Josep Borell and hosted by his special envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue Slovak diplomat Miroslav Lajcak.

The European Commission said that Belgrade and Pristina are resuming their dialogue to normalize relations on July 12. Commission spokesman Peter Stano said that negotiations will continue to reach a comprehensive and legally binding agreement to normalize relations between Belgrade and Pristina and resolve all unresolved issues.
Vucic was scheduled to meet Kosovo President Hashim Thaci at the White House in Washington late in June but decided not to leave Pristina after the Specialist Prosecution in the Hague announced that it was indicting him for war crimes. His role in the dialogue was taken over by Hoti.
