Serbia Cannot Accept EU’s Paper on Kosovo, Tanjug Cites Vucic

March 21 (Bloomberg) -- Serbia can’t accept the conditions offered by the European Union during yesterday’s round of talks on improving bilateral ties with its former breakaway province of Kosovo, state news agency Tanjug said, citing Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic.

Serbia remains committed to getting a start date of EU entry negotiations “but the paper on the table yesterday did not give Serbia a one percent chance to accept it,” because no one else was ready for any kind of compromise or concession, Tanjug quoted Vucic as telling the Cabinet today.

Serbia and Kosovo held a seventh round of EU-mediated talks in Brussels yesterday. Prime Ministers Ivica Dacic and Hashim Thaci are scheduled to meet again on April 2 as Serbia seeks political and other rights including in education, the judiciary and police in Serbian-dominated municipalities in northern Kosovo. Serbia needs to improve ties with Kosovo by mid-April to get a date for talks by the end of June.
