The Serbian side does not intend to sign anything during the meeting with the representatives of the EU and Kosovo, which will take place later today, in the city of Ohrid (North Macedonia), Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic stated before the meeting, Interfax reported.

"I will tell you now that I will not sign anything, and they [the interlocutors] are not concerned about it. Do you think they are happy? They are not happy because they are happy only with Serbia's failures, and they would be happy if I said something else. They want to talk about the normalization of relations. We can talk about this with each other," Vucic said, Serbian RTS television reported.

Bilateral meetings of EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell with Vucic and the Prime Minister of Kosovo, Albin Kurti, are expected to take place in Ohrid on Saturday, and then the trilateral meeting will take place. Miroslav Lajcak, EU Special Representative for the Belgrade-Pristina Dialogue and other Western Balkan regional issues, will also take part in this meeting.

The Serbian Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija, which is mostly inhabited by Albanians, unilaterally declared independence from Serbia in 2008 after a bloody conflict. Most of the Western countries have recognized this step, but Serbia continues to consider these lands as part of the Serbian state.
