Vucic: Kosovo situation almost hopeless; meets Russian envoy Izvor: N1

Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Sunday that the Kosovo situation is almost hopeless, adding that “a hard battle is coming” in the negotiations with Pristina.

Speaking live on the pro-authorities TV Pink, Vucic said that Belgrade’s goal is to lose as little as possible in the dialogue with Pristina. “The goal is to get something, lose as little as we have to and get some of what was lost between 2000 and 2008,” he said.

Later on Monday, Vucic briefed the Russian ambassador to Serbia Alexander Bocan – Harchenko about the resumption of the dialogue with Pristina. Vucic's office statement said the two discussed the situation in the Western Balkans, especially concerning Kosovo's issue."

 He refused to discuss Belgrade’s negotiating position claiming that could harm Serbia’s interests in Europe and the world. According to Vucic, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel showed great interest in the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue for geopolitical reasons and because “they know that a frozen conflict can’t be maintained indefinitely”.

“Conflicts and wars are not in anyone’s interest,” he said.
