Cooper was in Belgrade last week.

Head of the Kosovo Albanian delegation in the dialogue with Belgrade Edita Tahiri confirmed she will meet with Cooper, who will inform her about Belgrade's positions on the continuation of the dialogue.

Tahiri stated that Brussels had proposed that the next round of talks be held on October 14, adding that Priština will consider this proposal only after the meeting with EU facilitator and after receiving a confirmation that the next round of the dialogue will include only technical issues.

She said that Priština considers the implementation of the reached agreements and further talks on issues of energy, telecommunications and regional cooperation as most important in the continuation of the dialogue.

Head of the Belgrade delegation in the dialogue with Priština Borislav Stefanović stated after the meeting with Cooper in Belgrade on Friday that the dialogue will continue after resolving the issues of administrative crossings in northern Kosovo, adding that the solution to the issues of Jarinje and Brnjak checkpoint was near.
