BELGRADE - In a public address, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Thursday Serbia had still not received a draft paper on what the EU wanted from the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue and that both sides had submitted their own proposals.

"I worked with them (the EU) on that issue for three days. We have submitted our proposal, and the (Kosovo) Albanians have submitted their own. We have not received anything from Brussels as yet, and the paper still does not exist, as of 6 pm today" Vucic said following meetings with EU and US special envoys Miroslav Lajcak and Gabriel Escobar.

He said an upcoming meeting in Ohrid, North Macedonia, would not be a fateful one and noted that, like anywhere else, he would try to do the best for Serbia and continue to work on normalisation of Belgrade-Pristina relations.

He said it was not about what he would sign, but about whether he would sign anything.

"But, in fact, no one is hoping I will not sign something because no one cares about Kosovo-Metohija... All those who are organising protests are hoping I will sign so that they can demand my head on a platter - not because they would be afraid or dissatisfied as a result of the (EU) plan being accepted," Vucic said.

"We will continue to work on normalisation and we will be a constructive partner to the EU. We firmly stand by our red lines - I have not lied to anyone in discussions," he said.
