Frozen conflict in Kosovo at this moment is a better solution, since an agreement on normalization of relations would encompass swift and hasty measures and would in fact represent a legal act on the recognition of Kosovo, former Minister for Kosovo and Metohija and Faculty of Political Sciences in Belgrade Professor, Slobodan Samardzic told FoNet news agency.
According to Samardzic hasty reached agreement can not resolve conflict that lasts more than 120 years, adding that the entire process in reaching a compromise seeks time to inform the public about it.
“It is an entire set of negotiations and delicate concessions we should give to each other in order to reach a lasting solution,” Samardzic said.
He reiterated stance that “comprehensive normalization is in fact recognition,” explaining that normalization would mean regulating relations in the international politics and recognition of Kosovo as a subject in that area. He added resolution of Kosovo issue should return to the United Nations and under no conditions Serbia should accept some sort of international conference about Kosovo.
He said United Nations are better option, as decisions there are made by consensus, so great powers would have to accept that model in deciding. He is against Kosovo seat in the UN, since it would equal to the international recognition. He recalled that UN SC Resolution treats Kosovo as a part of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and Serbia is legal successor of that state.
“Then why would Serbia accept secession as a fait accompli and yet recognize it? It has never happened. There are no crucial reasons for it,” Samardzic underlined, adding that Kosovo is occupied, and Albanians want to break it away by force.
