Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Oct. 11 that he didn't have to say what Serbia's answer to being asked to "recognize Kosovo's independence without getting anything in return, and seeing the Serbs exposed to a pogrom similar to that of March 17, 2004," was.

When asked to comment on a statement by the European Union's special envoy for talks between Belgrade and Pristina, Miroslav Lajcak, who said earlier that he expected the Serbian president to make "a far-reaching decision" on Kosovo, Vucic said that Serbia was always prepared to discuss a variety of compromises, but that it had to be a compromise, not an ultimatum.

"I hope the European Union will understand well that someone cannot not sign an agreement in Brussels under the auspices of the Union only to pass a resolution denying the existence of the Community of Serb Municipalities and saying that they would never accept it, or asking Serbia to recognize Kosovo's independence first" followed by the creation of the Community afterwards, President Vucic said. 

The president added that "it can't be easy" for the EU envoy for the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue when he gets a message from Pristina that it refuses to talk about something that it signed seven years ago in Brussels.
