Belgrade-Pristina Talks

Central Europe Briefs

News | Vienna Review | September 2011

 Custom talks between Serbia and Kosovo  are scheduled to resume Sept. 2 in Brussels after a six week delay, a move welcomed by the European Commision that had mediated the start of negotiations in March.

The talks were interrupted in July when Pristina banned Serbian imports in response to Serbia’s blockade of Kosovar goods since 2008.

An attempt to enforce the Kosovar ban with military means was countered by ethnic Serbs at the border, requiring NATO peacekeepers to step in and restore order.
