North Macedonia’s President Stevo Pendarovski said on Tuesday he was against border changes, but that any agreement between Belgrade and Pristina was acceptable with the international guarantees it would be the “unique case,” the Beta news agency reported.

 In an interview with Al Jazeera Balkans, Pendarovski said that he believed that border changes in the Balkans could only bring troubles, bearing in mind a complicated, lengthy and troubling history.

However, he added that “whatever Belgrade and Pristina agree on, with the international factors’ support, I assume, that must be valid only between the two, and not to be a principle for other regional countries.”

When Serbia’s former province of Kosovo declared independence from Belgrade in 2008, some politicians and experts warned that could cause a domino effect in the countries with significant ethnic minorities or strong independence aspirations.

The European Union then described Kosovo as the “unique case,” saying something like that would not happen anywhere else.
