VUCIC CALLS ON ROMANIAN PRESIDENT TO HELP WITH SOLUTION FOR KOSOVO

BELGRADE, 8 March 2018 (Beta) - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic stated in Bucharest on March 8 that he had asked Romanian President Claus Iohannis for support, with the aim of finding a compromise solution for Kosovo. "I have asked Claus Iohannis, who is the president not just of the largest country in our region, but also a country of repute, for his personal support and the support of Romania in finding a compromise solution. We spoke about my meeting with (German Chancellor) Angela Merkel, we spoke about everything that is important for reaching a compromise," Vucic said at a news conference in Bucharest. Vucic reminded that Romania was one of the five EU member countries that have not recognized the independence of Kosovo. Speaking about the solution for Kosovo, the Serbian president reiterated that the outcome could not be that one side gets everything, and the other remains unsatisfied. Asked by a reporter whether the solution included the recognition of Kosovo's independence, Vucic said Serbia was not considering the recognition of Kosovo and that this would not be a compromise, as it would mean that the ethnic Albanians get everything.
