Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic commented on Nov. 24 recommendations from the European Parliament saying that Belgrade was not interested in mutual recognition with Pristina.
"I wasn't particularly upset by the EP's recommendations. We are not interested in mutual recognition with Pristina, while as for sanctions against Russia we will know how to bring decisions on our own," Vucic said in Belgrade after meeting with the Republika Srpska leadership.
He said that Serbia would continue listening to what the EP had to say and that it would bring decisions in accordance with its interests. Vucic said that the EP had not adopted any resolution like the media was saying but recommendations and that the essence was that the document not only requests that Serbia introduce sanctions against Russia, but recommends that Serbia recognize Kosovo's independence.
Vucic said that the international factor in the dialogue with Pristina on the issue of license plates treated Belgrade's representatives fairly but that "they will always essentially be on Pristina's side." "We have no one at this point to get help and support from. There is no one who can help us. This is why it is important that we develop our country, be strong and united and take care of our country Serbia," Vucic said.
