Dacic: Enough with lies that Serbian government is ready to recognize Kosovo

August 1, 2020

We've had enough of the disgusting lies that the government in Serbia and President Aleksandar Vucic are ready to recognize the independence of Kosovo, as Bosko Obradovic stated for the umpteenth time today, Serbian Deputy Prime Minister Ivica Dacic stated in a statement on Saturday.

He continued saying that "in eight years of the Socialist Party of Serbia's (SPS) coalition with Vucic, Serbia has returned the Kosovo issue to the agenda, unlike the time of Tadic, Jeremic and Djilas, when everyone said that everything had already been resolved."

"During that time, almost ninety countries recognized Kosovo. During our rule, 18 countries withdrew the recognition of Kosovo, so that Kosovo no longer has a majority for the admission to international organizations," Dacic noted.

According to him, Serbia and Vucic were clear when they said they want dialogue and a peaceful solution to the problem, but that they will never agree to blackmail or an ultimatum for the recognition of Kosovo.

“So stop lying to the people that someone will recognize Kosovo," Dacic concluded.
