Today, one year has been elapsed since the launch of the Internal dialogue on Kosovo and Metohija, which main aim was to involve all relevant stakeholders in a public debate on possible solutions to the Kosovo issue. The Working group of the National Convention on the EU for Chapter 35 , accepted a call for participation in the Internal dialogue and organized a meeting with the President of the Republic, on which some of the common positions on the principles for resolving the Kosovo issue, were presented, as well as the individual positions of the members of the National Convention on the European Union.

We remind public that our common attitudes mean that the priority in the process of resolving the Kosovo issue is the preservation of peace and security in the region; that the proposal of a comprehensive solution for the normalization of relations will enable Serbia’s undisturbed path towards membership in the European union, and that the solution be compromise, realistic and sustainable. We also asked to continue with the Internal dialogue in a form that enables open and constructive dialogue between representatives of authorities, opposition, civil society organizations and other stakeholders, as this is the only way to achieve social consensus, ensure implementation and ensure the viability of the proposed solution.

Given that there is no information about on the results of the Internal dialogue, we invite the representatives of authorities, especially the President of the Republic and Government of the Republic of Serbia to inform the public about the following issues:

  • Is the Internal Dialogue on Kosovo and Metohija still in progress or has this process been completed?
  • When will to the public be available an analytical report that came out of public discussions that were conducted in the framework of the Internal Dialogue on Kosovo and Metohija?

Normalization of relations with Pristina is an important condition for european integration of Serbia. That is why Working group NCEU for Chapter 35 is calling the President of Serbia and the Government of Serbia to continue public dialogue about Kosovo and Metohija and to make it more transparent, with the aim of finding solution that would create the conditions for lasting peace in the region and smooth the path of Serbia towards European integration.
