Greece assures us that it will not recognize the so-called Kosovo, said today the President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic.
He added that “large and important” consultations on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija would follow in the coming days.
Asked about speculation that France could take over the “presidency” over the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, Vucic told TV Pink: “I will discuss things in the coming days. It is crucial for us to defend our national and state interests, and everything else in the coming days. ”
As he said, there will be big and important consultations in Belgrade and then he expects the dialogue to continue in Brussels. Asked about allegations that France could propose an interim agreement under which northern Kosovo and Metohija would gain autonomy, and the Serbian Orthodox Church a special status, in exchange for Greek recognition and visa liberalization for Kosovo , he said: “We can talk about it in the coming days. I would not talk in advance until we are sure what is on the table.”
He added that there were some differences in relations (between Athens and Pristina). “I look forward to seeing, as there have been some changes in relations, whether it is simply a trade office or there is a ‘point of interest’ between Pristina and Athens. “We will see how it goes, so we will inform the public,” Vucic said. In speculation that Greece may recognize Kosovo, he says Greece assures us it will not do so.
“They assure us that they will not recognize Kosovo, and these claims we have heard are certainly not the best news for us. “We will see, we will inform the public about this,” Vucic said. /ibna
