Kosovo Deputy Foreign Minister Kreshnik Ahmeti has said that there were several "non-papers" that Serbia had sent to the Council of Europe's address in Strasbourg against Kosovo's being given membership in the Council of Europe, but that, according to him, "it has lost this battle."

"We lobbied at several levels, diplomatic and political, to secure support in votes and we have secured this support, a legal interpretation has been given that there are no obstacles and that this a lost battle for Serbia," Ahmeti said in an interview with the Pristina-based Kosova Press news agency.

Ahmeti said that had Serbia not stopped it so-called "campaign for derecognition of Kosovo" which he said "has not achieved any results."

Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Jan. 1 that one of the priorities in the New Year would be continuing policies connected to derecognition of Kosovo and that another country was expected to scrap its recognition of Kosovo in the first several weeks of this year.

He also said that he was slated to talk with Iceland which was the Council of Europe's chairing country in an attempt to ensure that Pristina's admission into the organization is not on the organization's agenda.
