The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vucic, told the United States Department of State senior adviser, Derek Chollet, that for his country any form of formal or informal recognition of Kosovo’s independence and its membership in the United Nations represents “red lines”.
On January 12, US State Department senior adviser Derek Chollet met in Belgrade with Vucic and Serbian Prime Minister Ana Bernabic.
Vucic told reporters that he discussed the Franco-German plan for the dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia, which is mediated by the European Union, along with the American diplomat.
“We have shown what our ‘red lines’ are. Any form of formal or informal recognition of independence or permission to join the UN [for Kosovo], we do not want and cannot discuss, and this is an integral part of that plan,” said Vucic.
