President Aleksandar Vucic told US Under-Secretary of State David Hale on Friday that the negotiation platform which the Kosovo parliament adopted on Thursday showed that Pristina wanted to end the dialogue with Belgrade.
A press release from the president’s cabinet quoted Vucic as saying that “Serbia will introduce measures in a relatively short time in reaction to the failure to meet the obligations in the Brussels agreement, the imposing of tariffs and Pristina’s decision to end the dialogue with Belgrade”.
The president said Belgrade’s stand would be “decisive, serious, responsible and firm”, the press release said and added that Vucic had warned European Union High Representative Federica Mogherini and her team that the adopting of this platform leaves no room to compromise.
Speaking to reporters in the town of Belegis later, Vucic said that Serbia would preserve its national interests. “We are not scared of their threats and helpers,” he said.
Vucic said that the only argument that Pristina has is the ruling by the International Court of Justice about its declaration of independence and blamed opposition leaders Vuk Jeremic, Dragan Djilas and Boris Tadic for requesting the opinion of that court.
