Dacic: Recognizing Kosovo is red line Serbia won’t cross

July 20, 2021

Serbian Parliament Speaker Ivica Dacic said on Tuesday that recognizing Kosovo is the red line that official Belgrade won’t cross.

Dacic told the pro-government TV Happy that Serbia’s delegation to the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue will always have the interests of the state in mind and will not cross any red lines.

Commenting European Union envoy Miroslav Lajcak’s statement that very little progress was made during Monday’s meeting between Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and Kosovo Prime Minister Albin Kurti, Dacic said that the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue will be hard to continue without any tangible results.

Dacic said that was told by Lajcak recently that no meetings would be organized if they don’t yield results. “He obviously has patience and I think that it’s good that he does since it’s better to sit and talk than to create problems on the ground but it’s a question of perspective because Kurti evidently does not want to tackle the issues on the agenda,” he said.
