There will be no solution for the Kosovo issue without the consent of the Serb people, President Aleksandar Vucic told reporters on Saturday.

“All this time I am trying to lead the ship upstream and not downstream although that would be easier and I am trying to oppose all those who want to opt for easy solutions, as that downstream path leads us to an islet, we would end up washed up as a people and our ship would sink,” said Vucic, adding that Serbia’s interest is reaching a compromise on the issue.

The President spoke to journalists in Belgrade following a meeting with the Serb member of neighbouring Bosnia and Herzegovina’s tripartite Presidency, Milorad Dodik.

He said that Belgrade and Pristina are not even close to reaching a compromise, not because of his own country’s behaviour but because Albanians are not prepared for it.

“We respect what (US President Donald) Trump, (Russia’s President Vladimir) Putin and the EU say, but I know that an agreement with the Albanians is not even close. I know how much we differ on everything and how differently we see what is happening in Kosovo,” Vucic said.

No solution can come without the consent of Russia and the US, he said.

The President also announced the construction of a monument in Donja Gradina, so that children in Serbia, Republika Srpska and Bosnia and Herzegovina can learn about the evil that took place in Jasenovac, a World War II concentration camp run by the Independent State of Croatia (NDH).

Dodik said that Serbs in Republika Srpska should have a right to self-determination and called upon Vucic to advocate for it in future meetings he may have.
