Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Sunday that the authorities in Pristina have an extremely favourable position in the Council of Europe to request Kosovo's membership in that organization, after which they will try to join Interpol and UNESCO.
“We will beat them there but it will be very difficult in the Council of Europe,” Vucic said for TV Prva.
He added that the first official candidacy of Pristina will be „in the days ahead,“ which will open access to Serbia and show that Belgrade, as he said, is not sitting idly by.
He noted said that he knew when German Chancellor Angela Merkel was coming to Serbia, that it would be soon, but that the agreement was not to disclose the exact date to the public.
Vucic also said that the presidential, parliamentary and elections for councillors in the Assembly of the City of Belgrade will be held on April 3 or 17 next year and that he still does not know whether he will run for President again.
