Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said in Belgrade on Monday that it’s not realistic to expect Washington alone to join in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue.
“There has been no indication of a change in format and no plans to include other countries in the dialogue. The US can’t really join in alone without someone else, that is not realistic,” Dacic told a news conference with his Norwegian counterpart Ine Eriksen Søreide.
He said an agreement between Belgrade and Pristina cannot include Serbia recognizing Kosovo on its entire territory. He said that a compromise solution to the Kosovo issue is the crucial thing for Belgrade.
“Serbia is not an obstacle to continuing the dialogue we just want to remove the existing obstacles so that it can continue,” Dacic said.
He added the relation between Belgrade and Oslo were "good and stable and that Serbia was interested in improving them politically but also economically.
"In the last 15 years, Norway aided Serbia with 216 million Euros for developing projects, and that money was not a loan. The country holds the second place in foreign direct investments with 1.36 billion Euros," Dacic said.
Søreide said she discussed the Belgrade - Pristina dialogue with Dacic, adding she would raise the issue of its resumption in Pristina later in the day.
"We want the talks to continue, that's the only way to solve the problem," she added.
