Kosovo had lost a large number of votes in the United Nations (UN) and now Pristina could count on support of 83 countries out of 193 UN members states, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Dec. 6.   

“They (Pristina) have lost the support because each country has started thinking about where separatism is leading to, especially amid the war in Ukraine, that is, whether Kosovo is actually a special case and whether their own territory could be possibly hit with some 'political tail,' Dacic told TV Prva.  

Speaking about the reasoning behind Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic’s decision to attend the EU-Western Balkans Summit in Tirana, Dacic said that it “is the tactics,” that is, an assessment of what was the best for Serbia at the moment.   

“Of course, it is always better to participate, because if you are absent, they talk about you without you. If you are not present, then others present only their versions of events,” Dacic explained.   

A declaration calling for respect and implementation of all the earlier achieved agreements is expected to be signed in Tirana. However, Dacic doubts that the document “will bring Pristina to its senses.”
