Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic says that most probably there will not be a meeting in Paris.
Unnamed diplomatic circles told Belgrade based daily Blic that representatives of Berlin and Paris will hold a series of unofficial meetings with Haradinaj and Thaci this week to prepare for a meeting on July 1 in Paris.
Blic reports today, citing a diplomatic source that several meetings have already been held.
Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron have no more room for more failures: another meeting of regional leaders without any results, like the one in Berlin, would be their debacle.
“In the past days, meetings were held with the leadership of Pristina. Berlin and Paris are trying to exert pressure on Haradinaj and Thaci to withdraw taxes so that even a small step can be made in the negotiations of the two sides,” said the source of the Belgrade daily.
A meeting in Paris will not be held without a guarantee that a shift will be made, says a source of the daily, adding that the West has only a few days left to convince its interlocutors in Pristina.
