Slovakia will not recognize Kosovo
Slovakia will not be willing to recognise Kosovo if it declares its independence unilaterally, Slovak PM Robert Fico (Smer-Social Democracy) told journalists after the EU summit in Brussels today.
The summit’s conclusion that the solution to the future status of the Serbian province of Kosovo, whatever it is like, will not become a precedence for solving similar crises in the world is a “great victory,” Fico said.
This conclusion is important not only for Slovakia but also for other countries where nations and ethnic minorities live together, Fico said.
Fico also said the integration of Serbia into Europe cannot be linked with the question of Kosovo, no matter what attitude Serbia will take towards the solution of Kosovo’s status.
“The future of Serbia in the EU cannot be conditioned by anything that concerns Kosovo,” Fico said.
