Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic on Nov. 7 said that Pristina’s intention to submit a candidacy for membership in the EU “is not surprising, as the illness, the madness has reached its peak and has become uncontrollable,” adding that “the entire world sees that (Kosovo Premier) Albin Kurti is an extremist whose actions have been jeopardizing peace and stability.”   

“It is a move, which, in our opinion, has no chance of success as five EU member states do not recognize Kosovo’s independence, but it obliges us to fortify our positions,” Dacic told state public broadcaster RTS, stressing that positions would once again be verified with “our friends.”   

Dacic also said he had spoken with a Slovakian minister in Vienna several days ago, and on Nov. 7 he would talk with the Hungarian foreign minister although Budapest had recognized Kosovo’s independence, “but they (Hungary) are our friends and often do not vote in favor of Kosovo in international organizations.”  

Dacic added that he would travel to Greece on Nov. 8, where he wanted also to talk about Kosovo, recalling that Cyprus, Romania and Spain were among the countries which had not acknowledged Kosovo’s independence.   

“As regards Cyprus, they have said that even if Serbia recognized Kosovo’s independence, they would not,” Dacic said, noting that it was enough to have only one EU member country against Kosovo’s membership in the Union.
