Ashton stated late on Tuesday in Brussels said that both Ivica Dačić and Hashim Thaci “reiterated their commitment to successful elections with the widest possible participation.”
Ashton said she and the two prime minister discussed implementation of the April 19 agreement and way forward on the November 3 municipal elections.
“We will continue our discussions on September 8,” the European foreign policy chief said.
As there is almost complete agreement in the Belgrade-Priština talks on telecommunications, energy is a bigger issue, while the design of Kosovo local election ballots will require “a rational decision,” Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dačić said after the talks.
After meeting with Kosovo Premier Hashim Thaci and European Union High Representative Catherine Ashton, Dačić stressed that the run-up to the local vote should be organized to allow the greatest possible turnout.
