She added that it remained to be seen what EU member states would decide when it comes to a date for the beginning of the EU accession negotiations.

Grubješić said that Serbia would in February organize a visit to German Bundestag aimed at persuading German MPs to support Serbia’s efforts to get a date for the start of the EU talks in June.

“I am sure that we will have good talks in Bundestag and that we will come back with good news,” she told Radio Television of Serbia (RTS) on Thursday.

The deputy PM for European integration reiterated that a condition for the beginning of the EU accession talks was to have a “sustainable and visible” dialogue with Kosovo.

When asked about a request of northern Kosovo Serbs not to implement agreements with Priština, Grubješić said that she understood their concern but that their fears were unfounded “because nobody will integrate them into Kosovo institutions by force”.

“Nobody is planning on making a border with Kosovo,” she concluded.
