Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić began a two-day visit to Brussels on Sunday with a meeting with Miroslav Lajčak, the EU’s special representative for the Belgrade-Priština dialogue.

Vučić is scheduled to have separate meetings on Monday with top EU officials, European Council President Charles Michel, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen, and High Representative Josep Borrell.

The Serbian president is also due to meet with European Enlargement Commissioner Oliver Varhelyi and European Parliament rapporteur for Serbia, Vladimir Bilčik. 

Vučić is expected to discuss a possible resumption of the Belgrade-Priština dialogue, applying the new methodology in accession talks with the EU, and measures to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Thursday, top EU officials in Brussels will receive Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti. Vučić announced earlier that the Brussels dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina should resume in May.
