Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov asked the EU’s Federica Mogherini on the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue and she said any potential agreement between the two sides would have to be ratified by the UN Security Council, Serbia’s Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said.

„This is evidence that Russia is monitoring the situation and that they won’t just be silent observers,“ Dacic said.

He also noted that it is a ‘lie’ that the US is not pressuring Pristina to abolish import taxes on products coming from Serbia and added that should the Belgrade-Pristina normalisation dialogue format be expanded, they would not allow Russia and China to be left out.

„The US was clear – tariffs must be abolished. They won’t allow Pristina to be an obstacle to the potential agreement and Kosovo will bear the consequences of their actions,“ Dacic noted.

According to him, the Russian President who stayed in Belgrade on Friday said that his meeting with the Kosovo President Hashim Thaci in November last year was not an official meeting and that it did not affect Russia in changing its position regarding Kosovo.
