Serbia Press Review - April 9, 2013

Thaci accepts continuation of Belgrade, Pristina dialogue. Ashton’s and European Commission reports on Serbia bring no recommendations.  Amended law helps pregnant women.

Belgrade

BLIC

Hashim Thaci, Kosovo's Prime Minister, said that collapse of Belgrade, Prisitna dialogue is not an option nor for Kosovo nor for Serbia and that he would accept the EU’s invitation for the new meeting with Serbian officials.

VECERNJE NOVOSTI

Daily reports that Catherine Ashton, the EU’s foreign policy chief, and European Commissions in report, both due in April, will not include no recommendations whether the date for the opening of the EU accession talks should be granted for Serbia. Daily’s sources say that both reports will include what has Serbia done in the field of reform and the dialogue with Kosovo and what are the next steps.

POLITIKA

Amendments to the Labour Law, that Serbian parliament adopted on April 8, oblige employers to extend employment for pregnant women who were working part-time. Pregnant women also cannot be dismissed if they inform their employers on their pregnancy within 15 days after a dismissal.

Balkan Insight has not verified the facts in the original press reports and cannot vouch for their accuracy.
