Prime Minister Hashim Thaci said Pristina and Belgrade will talk as two independent states and the main topics will be freedom of movement, trade and regional cooperation.
Kosovo’s leader, Hashim Thaci, said that talks with Serbia will focus on “matters that will ease the lives of citizens of both countries, such as freedom of movement, trade exchange and regional cooperation”.
He told Robert Cooper, from the office of the EU Foreign Policy chief, Catherine Ashton, who will facilitate the talks that Kosovo was dedicated to pursuing a European agenda, economic development, rule-of-law and good neighbourly relations.
Success in these fields “would speed us in Euro-Atlantic integrations”, he added.
Thaci has appointed Edita Tahiri, the Deputy Prime minister, to lead the Kosovo delegation in dialogue with Serbia.
Tahiri said that Kosovo’s final status, its territorial integrity and the future of the Serb-run north of Kosovo will not be on the agenda of the future talks with Serbia.
The talks are expected to take place in Brussels. It is still not clear what role the US, Russia and the UN will take.
Opposition parties have complained that the government is not putting its agenda for the talks first before the Kosovo Assembly.
