"Outcome of Kosovo talks suits extremists"

Milivoje Mihajlovic says that the latest round in the Belgrade-Pristina talks "yielded no results" because Pristina "does not need any agreement."

Serbian government's press office head added on Tuesday that he had "expected the West to put greater pressure on the Pristina delegation."

Mihajlovic told Belgrade-based TV Pink that such an outcome of the talks "suits only extremists, who make up for a great part of the Kosovo political arena," and added that the Albanian side is "playing for time."

He noted that the community of Serb municipalities is the topic that has been in the limelight for months, adding that after it was agreed on in Brussels two years ago, Pristina has been obstructing the realization of this agreement.

The Brussels dialogue stands as an opportunity for Serbia to come to an agreement and lasting peace in the Balkans that would be crowned with the historic reconciliation between Serbs and Albanians, while Pristina views the Brussels agreement as a burden, Mihajlovic said.

The new round of the Belgrade-Pristina agreement ended after 17 hours of negotiations yielding no results, and Serbian Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic told reporters that the two delegations did not come to an agreement on a single issue.
