BELGRADE - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic on Friday said US special presidential envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue Richard Grenell would hold a meeting with experts on rail and road traffic as early as Monday - a week after an agreement on reintroducing direct Belgrade-Pristina flights.

"So, close cooperation on those key issues, which do not harm anyone, will be continued," Vucic told a press conference after a Belgrade meeting with Grenell, but added that there would definitely be issues that were not easy to deal with.

He said reintroducing the Belgrade-Pristina flight route required three or four simoultaneuos steps:

"Establishing contact between KFOR and the Serbian Civil Aviation Directorate, drawing up an agreement between them, a lex specialis in the National Assembly and an agreement with Lufthansa, to be signed by the Directorate."

He said a similar procedure would be carried out to also introduce a rail line.

A delegation of the Serbian Ministry of Economy signed on Monday in Berlin with Lufthansa a letter of intent on reintroducing a Belgrade-Pristina flight route.
