Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Sept. 19 that there was no chance that Belgrade would accept Kosovo becoming a part of the United Nations.
Vucic is staying in New York until Sept. 23 and while there will take part in the 77th session of the U.N. General Assembly.
Vucic told Pink TV that Serbia would face problems whether it accepts Kosovo's membership in the U.N. or not.
"If we accept, you will never be able to remove from the U.N. If we don't, we'll be isolated. Everything has its consequences," Vucic said.
He added that he had been offered a paper that he refused to accept during a visit by Miroslav Lajcak, the European Union's special representative to the Belgrade-Pristina dialog, and that he could not say whether a post on the albanianpost.com website about a German-French proposal for a new dialog framework was accurate.
The president of Serbia announced serious work on launching a comprehensive statehood movement for Serbia's survival and progress in the next six months, voicing the conviction that he would have vast popular support for "a normal and decent Serbia."
Vucic will have many bilateral meetings with global officials while in New York, and is also scheduled to address the U.N. General Assembly.
