The dinner was organized by EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini and Macedonian Prime Minister Zoran Zaev “for representatives of the Western Balkans as part of the visit of Mogherini to the region.”
The topics discussed were European integration, current political and security situation, as well as regional political and economic cooperation, a statement said.
The Serbian Prime Minister Brnabic “reiterated that she is pleased that the European Commission’s Annual Report on the process of Serbia’s accession to the European Union recognizes the results of this and the previous Government of Serbia achieved in the implementation of economic reforms” and that the report was “positive and balanced for Serbia – but that the government will give comments to the European Union regarding parts with which it does not agree.”
The Prime Minister Brnabic “highlighted the importance of preserving peace and stability in the region, as well as the definite forming of the Community of Serb Municipalities, in accordance with the Brussels Agreement” and condemned the recent brutal arrest of Director of the Office for Kosovo and Metohija Marko Djuric in Mitrovica North.
