“Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in Berlin on Tuesday and the main topics discussed were reforms in Serbia, as well as the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina. The interlocutors agreed that the relations between Germany and Serbia are getting better.

Like the President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker yesterday, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, on Tuesday, highlights reforms highlighted reforms in the domain of the rule of law and protection of basic rights as key points on the European path of Serbia, as well as the solution to relations with Kosovo after talks with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

At a press conference in Berlin, Merkel said that the next six months, during the presidency of Bulgaria, the Union will intensify its contacts and encounters with the countries of the Western Balkans.

‘As for the expectations for relations with Kosovo, I am not the one who will prescribe what has to happen. We discussed what is desirable, what needs to be done, but the initiative is starting from Serbia. The President of Serbia is the main actor. We support things when our support is being sought, but I will not share the advice, especially not in the public,’ Merkel said.” (translated from VoA)
