In a show on Radio and Television of Serbia, Stefanovic confirmed that the issue of registers and electricity supply for the Serbs in KiM will be the main topics of the second round of talks in Brussels Monday.

Head of the Belgrade team for the dialogue with Pristina Borislav Stefanovic stated Saturday that Serbia cannot deliver the originals of registers which were taken from Kosovo-Metohija (KiM) after the bombing in 1999, as that would mean renouncing one's own sovereignty, adding, however, that the country is ready to deliver the copies of those registers.

In a show on Radio and Television of Serbia, Stefanovic confirmed that the issue of registers and electricity supply for the Serbs in KiM will be the main topics of the second round of talks in Brussels Monday.

He pointed out that the Serbian side on several occasions made it very clear that Pristina's request for Serbia to return the originals of registry books is unacceptable.

"No sovereign, independent and democratic country would renounce its registers, as this would mean renouncing one's own sovereignty, and if you will, the sovereignty of the citizens whose files are contained in those registers," Stefanovic underscored.

According to him, the issue of Serbian licence plates which are not recognized by Pristina will not be raised in the second round of talks.

"We are preparing a high quality, European proposal, which will enable the Serbs in KiM to own Serbia's licence plates, and use their vehicles without fear that they will be forcibly dispossessed of them," Stefanovic announced.

Ivanovic: Dialogue must yield results by summer

State Secretary at the Serbian Ministry for Kosovo-Metohija (KiM) Oliver Ivanovic stated Sunday that the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue must yield results by July or August, pointing out that this is important in both practical and psychological sense.

Ivanovic told Tanjug that the freedom of movement, one of the topics of the second round of talks scheduled for Monday in Brussels, is very significant, stressing that Serbia's negotiation team is well prepared and that they will try to solve the problem of Serbs who are being mistreated by the Kosovo police due to the Serbian licence plates they have on their vehicles.

"This, of course, means that we will also have to solve the issue of Kosovo Albanians who want to travel. I am sure that a solution will be found, the Belgrade team will table several options, and which of them will be adopted depends on the other side as well," Ivanovic stressed.

Ivanovic said that, after the first step forward is made, the agreement on other issues will be reached more easily.
