Serbia Would Give Up EU Over Kosovo

Head of Serbian diplomacy Ivan Mrkic said that the country would give up its bid for membership in European Union if it would be conditioned by Kosovo recognition.

“We would then give up the membership”, said Mrkic in an interview given to German paper “Der Tagesspiegel” in response to what would happen if the EU demanded from Serbia to recognize Kosovo as one of the EU membership conditions.

Asked if Serbia could recognize Kosovo independence if the simultaneous territory exchange were to take place, Mrkic responded that “history teaches us that all options are possible during political negotiations”..

“We would like for Kosovo Albanians to be able to lead a normal life and have no interest in seeing them suffer in any way”, said Mrkic.
