LONDON - Serbian PM Ana Brnabic on Monday said her meeting with US official Matthew Palmer earlier in the day had primarily addressed the situations in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Montenegro and the way the latest political shockwaves could impact regional stability and the economic situation in Serbia.

"We did not even mention Pristina's taxes (on Serbian goods) or the new Pristina administration in a single sentence. This perhaps best shows how much the US, on the one hand, is now thinking about a potential destabilisation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and how seriously they are watching the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina and, on the other hand, that (US special presidential envoy) Richard Grenell has completely taken over the issue of Belgrade-Pristina relations and the taxes," Brnabic told reporters in London.

She said Palmer would speak with Aleksandar Vucic during the Serbian president's visit to Washington and that she would again meet with Palmer at the Delphi Economic Forum, as well as that she expected him to soon visit Belgrade.

The conclusion of the meeting was that regional stability is absolutely the most significant topic, politically as well as economically, she said.
