Intergovernmental conference date "depends on dialogue"
BELGRADE -- Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić said on Monday that the dialogue with Priština would continue this week.
The date for the first intergovernmental conference on accession to the EU will depend on the dialogue, he said.
"We will have discussions this week with Priština and it will depend on that whether we will get the holding of the first intergovernmental conference in December or in January, or at all," Dačić was quoted as saying, and adding:
"There are countries that believe it should be postponed."
Dačić was addressing reporters in Voždovac, where he was campaign ahead of early local elections in that Belgrade municipality.
Dačić, who is the leader of the Socialists (SPS), said that Serbia is now "the closest it has been to the EU in its history, but still so close, yet so far away."
He reiterated that "difficult decisions must be made," and that this was "precisely the reason the citizens elect political leaders."
