BELGRADE, December 7. /TASS/. Serbia has not changed its stance on Kosovo’s independence, Serbia Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Sunday.
“It is absolutely unacceptable for us,” he said at a news conference. Commenting on Serbian President Tomislav Nikolic’s words that sooner or later Serbia would have to face a dilemma - either a European Union membership or recognizing Kosovo’s independence, Ducic said that the European Union had never demanded that Serbia should recognize Kosovo.
“Official papers of the European Union have nothing to bind Serbia to recognize Kosovo,” he said. “This might be said in unofficial conversations but nothing of the kind has been heard in official talks.”
“They (official documents of the European Union) have it that Serbia must progress in a a dialogue on the normalization of relations with Pristina but this dialogue is neutral in terms of its status,” he said.
Earlier, President Nikolic said, “Brussels will put us before a choice concerning Kosovo’s recognition, and we must be ready for that. We should reach national consensus on this matter as soon as possible.”
