BRUSSELS - European Commission spokesperson Peter Stano confirmed on Thursday the EU special envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue Miroslav Lajcak has invited both parties to a February 27 meeting in Brussels to discuss Pristina's ban on the Serbian dinar, and noted that Pristina chief negotiator Besnik Bislimi's behaviour towards Lajcak was "unacceptable."
