During the negotiations, the Serbian side insisted on discussing the issue of the Trepca mining basin, which Pristina refused to do.

Therefore, this issue was discussed with the EU - the mediator in the Kosovo dialogue - and on that occasion representatives of the EU reiterated that they "took note" of Serbia's position.

The two sides discussed practical solutions for the implementation of the agreement on the freedom of movement.

In particular they discussed the stickers that will be used starting on November 15 to cover ​​status symbols on vehicles crossing from Kosovo to central Serbia and vice versa.

According to information that came from the delegations, the two sides are working intensively on the implementation of the agreement on registration plates, while the EU, as a mediator in the talks, insisted that the stickers, that will be used in place of temporary plates, be free of charge for citizens.

The dialogue continues on Thursday with the issue of university diplomas on the agenda.

Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama has published a video address on his official Facebook account after his visit to Serbia, speaking about about what he thought Albanians and Serbs could do together in this century. He said that the two nations can play an important role in the Balkans, similar to that which the French and the Germans played for the whole of Europe in the 20th century.
