German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said on May 20 in Belgrade that Germany is looking for tangible results in the implementation of the "historic agreement" between Belgrade and Pristina in order to approve a date for the start of Serbia's European Union accession talks.
Westerwelle, at the end of his visit to Serbia during which he met top-level officials, underscored that it was important to implement the agreement, but not all at once, but rather step by step.
I cannot prejudge the decisions which government leaders or the EU countries or the Bundestag need to make, but if the right decisions are made here and if the results of the implementation of that agreement are tangible, then I can send a positive signal to our parliament," said Westerwelle at a press conference with Serbian Prime Minister Ivica Dacic.
Dacic said he expected an agreement implementation plan to be agreed during th edialogue with Pristina and that he hoped Pristina would not ask for something not in the agreement initialled on April 19. He said that for Serbia it was "of vital importance" that a date for the start of EU accession talks be received, and that every delay in the decision could have "catastrophic consequences" for the country and its citizens.
Westerwelle also spoke with Deputy Prime Minister Aleksandar Vucic, President Tomislav Nikolic and Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic in Belgrade.
