One week before the meeting that Kosovo and Serbia are to hold at the White House, the European Union has called a meeting between the parties. But Prime Minister Avdullah Hoti and Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic will not go there. The EU has called a meeting between “experts from Kosovo and Serbia.”

On 27 August, the EU plans to resume negotiations between Kosovo and Serbia, while the administration of US President Donald Trump has organized a meeting at the White House on 4 September.

EU Foreign Policy spokeswoman Nabila Massrali told Gazeta Express that an expert-level meeting would be held in Brussels on Thursday.

“The dialogue, after its resumption at the highest level at the end of July, will continue with a series of meetings at the experts’ level. We confirm that the meeting will be held on 27 August. In principle, we do not comment on upcoming discussions,” said Massrali.

At this level, Kosovo is represented by Skender Hyseni, whom Prime Minister Hoti, in agreement with President Hashim Thaci, has appointed as coordinator for the dialogue with Serbia.

Serbia will be represented by Marko Djuric, who in Serbia holds the post of head of the so-called “Office for Kosovo”. /GazetaExpress/
