Kosovo and Serbia are expected to launch the final phase of the dialogue on normalisation of relations between the two countries. During the final phase of the dialogue Pristina is hoping to get a modality for establishment of its army, whereas Belgrade wants the Association of Serb-majority Municipalities to have executive powers in some areas.
Daniel Serwer, the director of the Conflict Management Program at the Johns Hopkins School of International Studies in Washington DC and former diplomat in an interview with the Pristina daily Zeri, said that it is highly unlikely for the Association of Serb-majority Municipalities to have executive powers. “I am with the Constitutional Court. I also think that it is unlikely for the Association to have executive powers, because interests of different Serb-run municipalities are different,” Serwer said.
