Serbia and Kosovo have held further talks in Brussels with a view to normalising ties.

Doing so is essential if Belgrade is ever to fufil its ambition of joining the European Union.

Kosovo’s prime minister told reporters that a number of issues were on the table.

“This meeting is going to be an important one. We continue discussing the implementation of the agreement already reached and we will discuss technical questions regarding telecommunication and energy sectors.”

The meeting comes ahead of the Kosovan municipal elections.

Serbia opposes ballot papers carrying any references to ‘the state of Kosovo’.

“We have been working on varoius bits of the implementation together with the two sides also over the summer, these includes for examle issues like preparation for the municipal election announced for the 3th of November. “

All EU countries recognise Kosovo, except Cyprus, Greece, Romania, Slovakia, and Spain.
