The Belgrade-based daily Vecernje Novosti further writes that this will be "one of the main conclusions" of the upcoming joint session of all Serb municipalities in Kosovo.

Another daily, Blic, writes that Serbian officials will once again ask Pristina to fulfill its part of the obligations stemming from the Brussels agreement during the next negotiating round at the EU seat.

According to this, PM Aleksandar Vucic will "insist" that the SZO is formed and operational, and that the organization has executive powrers instead of serving only as "fake decoration" in the province.

The newspaper notes that Albanian leaders in Kosovo had "signed that obligation" as part of the coalition agreement they have with the Serb List.

Kosovo Prime Minister Isa Mustafa said on Thursday that Serb representatives did not come up with any conditions for their return to this government, but also that no conditions would be accepted.

The Serb List and Serbian government officials said earlier in the week there would be no return to the Kosovo institutions unless ethnic Albanian parties respected the coalition agreement.
