Dacic - Mogerini First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic met today in Brussels with EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission, Federica Mogherini.

EU High Representative Federica Mogherini stressed that she supported the EU enlargement process and stated that the process would not slow down on her watch, despite the fact that no country would become an EU Member State during that period. Mogherini supported the resumption of dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina on the political level as son as possible, pointing out that she would participate in it personally. She also stressed the importance of the OSCE chairmanship by Serbia in 2015, particularly bearing in mind the role played by this organization in the process of crisis management in Ukraine.

Minister Dacic pointed out that, during its OSCE chairmanship, Serbia would seek all possible ways to help the Minsk peace process to find a peaceful solution. When it comes to the alignment of Serbian foreign policy with that of the EU, Mogherini stated that the EU expected Serbia's progressive alignment.

During the meeting, Mogherini and Dacic discussed also an initiative of the EU related to the situation in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dacic pointed out that Serbia was willing to assist in this process and added that Serbia "would support any solution that contributes to the stability of BiH". Mogherini said that she planned to visit Serbia early next year at the latest.
