The envoy of the European Union for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Miroslav Lajçak, said the reason for his visit to Pristina today is to refocus on the dialogue process between the two countries.

In a press conference after the meeting with the Deputy Prime Minister, Besnik Bislimi, Lajcak said that they also discussed with him the EU growth plan, as according to him, this is a financial instrument that offers 6 billion euros to the partners of the Western Balkans. but for Kosovo and Serbia, this distribution of money is conditional on their constructive engagement in dialogue.

Meanwhile, when asked about Borrell's report that he sent to the EU countries about the measures that Kosovo still has in place due to the tense situation in the north of the country in May and June of 2023, Lajçak said that the said report will be discussed tomorrow and then the journalists will be informed.

Lajcak also spoke about the opening of the Ibri bridge, saying that this is a matter of dialogue.

He said that the position of the EU is for the bridge to be open, but in such a way as not to escalate the situation, adding that he has proposed that this issue be discussed within the dialogue.
