"The High Representative will also hold separate meetings with each leader.

At the end of the meeting, there will be a statement to the media from the High Representative", the EU said.

Prime Minister Kurti and President Vucic will meet in Brussels, after the increase in tensions in the north of Kosovo as a result of the establishment of reciprocity measures by the executive of Kosovo, reports Telegrafi.

Kurti and Vucic met for the last time on May 5 at an informal dinner, with the mediation of the EU's special envoy for the Kosovo-Serbia dialogue, Miroslav Lajcak, who had previously met separately with the German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz.

Pre-meeting statements and international calls

In the meantime, before this meeting, there were political developments and attempts to influence the reduction of tensions, reports Telegrafi.

Two days before the meeting with Vucic, Kurti held a telephone conversation with officials of the USA and the United Kingdom.

Kurti, in an article on Twitter, showed that he talked with the adviser of the State Department, Derek Chollet, calling it a "fruitful phone call".

On the eve of the meeting, Prime Minister Albin Kurti and Deputy Prime Minister Besnik Bislimi met the Special Representative of the EU in Kosovo and the ambassadors of the QUINT countries.

During the meeting, the commitment to the continuation of cooperation and coordination between the Government of Kosovo and the representatives of the European Union, USA, Germany, Great Britain, France and Italy was emphasized.
