Head of Belgrade's negotiating team in the dialogue with Pristina Borislav Stefanovic invited late Monday municipal presidents from northern Kosovo-Metohija for talks, which will take place in Belgrade on Wednesday.

The topics would be administrative crossings, regional presentation and university degrees, Stefanovic said in a broadcast by B92, in which President of the Kosovska Mitrovica municipality Krstimir Pantic took part as well.

There is not much time, we should meet and state the options for the next period, Stefanovic said, while Pantic noted he will come to the meeting. Stefanovic pointed out that it is important to preserve the unity of Belgrade and Serbs in northern Kosovo in their presentation before the international community.

Pantic said that in the previous talks between Belgrade and Pristina agreements were made which are not in keeping with the Constitution of the Republic of Serbia.

The reached agreements are unacceptable not only for me, but for certain MPs of the ruling majority as well, he said, adding that by this, the Ahtisaari plan is already being implemented.

Stefanovic rejected such claims, and stated that the government has adopted all the agreements from the talks with Pristina. All agreements from Brussels were adopted and submitted to the Serbian parliament, he said. He noted that the issue of implementation of the agreements is "a separate issue."

The dialogue with Pristina is not about what Serbia will change in its constitutional or legal system, Stefanovic said, and reiterated that Serbia will not recognize the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo.

Still no date for talks

Head of the Belgrade team for the talks with Pristina Borislav Stefanovic said on Tuesday that the date for the resumption of the dialogue had not been set yet, but he left open the possibility for the talks to continue on November 18.

Commenting on EU mediator for the talks Robert Cooper's statement that they could be resumed on November 18, as reported by the Express daily from Pristina, Stefanovic told Tanjug the date was not out of the question, but that the final agreement had not been reached yet.

"Several options are on the table. I would not single out Friday in that sense, although it does not mean that Friday is out of the question, but that we are going to reach an agreement and then announce it," he explained.

First, consultations need to be held in Belgrade and the Serbian authorities have to make their decisions, he noted.

Stefanovic expects the committee on Kosovo meeting on Friday to improve unity. Parliament members will be able to find out everything relevant for their decision at the meeting, he said, adding that it will be the 9th time he and Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanovic are informing them in such a way.

Stefanovic also announced a meeting with presidents of northern Kosovo municipalities in Belgrade had been moved from Wednesday to Thursday.
