They both "hope that Priština will do everything possible to enable the Serbs in Kosovo and those internally displaced to turn out in massive numbers and vote for their representatives," Tanjug reported.

During their meeting in Belgrade, the Serbian minister without portfolio in charge of Kosovo and Metohija informed Kamsvag about the energy and telecommunications agreements reached between Belgrade and Priština in the latest round of the dialogue in Brussels, the Government Office for Kosovo, also headed by Vulin, said in a release.

The ambassador expressed his satisfaction about seeing important, encouraging steps made over the past twelve months, despite the challenges they posed before both Belgrade and Priština.

Kamsvag was quoted as saying that his country was "ready to support and facilitate this process by its programs."
