Belgrade does not know what Pristina is going to do in the next stage of the dialogue on normalizing relations, a senior Serbian Foreign Ministry official said on Friday.
Foreign Ministry General Secretary Veljko Odalovic said that ”it’s obvious that there is no clear signal from Pristina about the dialogue”.
”We don’t know what will happen,” he said and added: ”We are waiting for some document and given the political climate in Pristina we don’t know what we are going to get”.
”If Pristina’s condition is for Serbia to recognize Kosovo then why are we negotiating, why was the process to normalize relations launched,” Odalovic said.
”Our red line will be that we will not recognize Kosovo, theirs is for us to recognize Kosovo. There is no compromise if things are defined in that way,” he said.
”We have certain frameworks, we will come out with a certain platform. We are talking and it’s certain that recognition of independence is excluded as a possibility, we have nothing to talk about there,” the Foreign Ministry official said, adding that Belgrade will stick to what has been agreed under the 2013 Brussels Agreement.
