BELGRADE – Serbia will never accept Kosovo-Metohija’s independence, and it meets the conditions for EU accession as long as a recognition of Kosovo is not required, Serbian presidential adviser Stanislava Pak said in a comment on a statement by German Foreign Office official Michael Roth, who said that, before Serbia’s EU accession, everything must be clear regarding Kosovo.
“The Constitution of Serbia is clear and the President of the Republic will never violate it. Serbia is militarily neutral and it will never accept Kosovo-Metohija’s independence. At the same time, we meet the conditions for EU accession as long as a recognition of Kosovo-Metohija is not required,” Pak told the Vecernje novosti daily.
Roth, Minister of State for Europe at Germany’s Foreign Office, also said Serbia’s relations with Kosovo must be normalised in a legally binding manner.
