Aleksandar Vucic, Serbia’s President, told the state RTS TV on Monday that the next week’s UN Security Council session on Kosovo would be less important than a meeting in Paris with the same issue on the agenda in July “if it happens,” the FoNet news agency reported.

Vucic added he had information Washington wa involved in consultations about the meeting and that it could not allow another gathering to end in catastrophe and said if it became obvious the things would go in that direction, the meeting might not happen at all.

He said Belgrade’s readiness for the resumption of the dialogue with Pristina on the normalisation of relations was recognised in the world and that Pristina’s refusal to implement the Brussels agreement showed the difficult situation it was in and proved Kosovo Albanian leaders' weakness.

Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic told O2 TV it was impossible to find any other solution to Kosovo except “to respect the situation on the ground.” “Who controls it, it’s theirs,” Dacic said, adding that in that case, it was impossible for northern Kosovo to go under Pristina’s jurisdiction.

 Vucic said that when the talks were about a compromise, something should be offered, but that Pristina decided it was easier for them to say Serbia should recognise Kosovo and that would be a done deal.

  Earlier, addressing a conference in the northern city of Novi Sad organised by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, Vucic said it was important to “create Europe where we live,” and that the Western Balkans should work on its economic unification.

He added that the European Union would survive since “life there is too good for anyone to risk the destruction of Europe.”
