Djuric: Deal must not be made useless

5/11/2013 4:23:00 PM BELGRADE - Marko Djuric, head of the Belgrade team for the implementation of the Brussels agreement, has stated that Pristina is trying to interpret the agreement in a way that departs from its implementation, stressing that Belgrade will not allow the deal to be made useless.

“We will certainly not allow the agreement to be made useless and harmful for the Serbian people and Serbia through various interpretations that may be used as the basis for a bad implementation plan,” Djuric said in an interview for Saturday's edition of Belgrade-based daily Blic. Djuric said that Serbia did not accept this agreement with an intention to trick the other side, and it does not want to be deceived as well. 

 Djuric said that the Serbian side had a very constructive approach in an intention to stay in Brussels as long as needed for the agreement to be reached. “Serbia believes that the continuation of the talks is the only way towards the solution, and in this sense we hope that Pristina representatives will return to the negotiating table in the shortest possible period,” Djuric said. Belgrade and Pristina negotiating teams met in Brussels two times this week but failed to reach an agreement on the Brussels agreement implementation. The first round of the talks between the implementation teams held two weeks ago ended without a plan for the implementation of the agreement initialed in Brussels on April 19 by Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic and Kosovo Prime Minister Hasim Taci.
