Presidents of Kosovo and Serbia, Hashim Thaçi and Aleksandar Vučić are meeting today in Brussels together with the EU Minister of Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini. In this final stage of the dialogue, it is expected the talks will be about the normalisation of relations between the two countries. Today’s meeting  takes place a few days after both presidents appealed for international support for any agreement that can be achieved during these talks, even if it included changes in the borders.  Vučić’s goal is to introduce a border between Albanians and Serbs, which would mean a division of Kosovo. Thaçi, also supported correction of the borders,  which essentially means the Preševo valley will be joined with Kosovo.
