Slovakia’s Foreign Minister Miroslav Lajčak said that his country would not be changing its stance on not recognizing Kosovo.
“Our stance is clear and consistent, but not unfriendly,” Lajčak said.
Lajčak confirmed support for the countries of the Western Balkans for joining the EU and NATO, but added that Brussels would have to be involved very closely in the process because of the specific character of the region.
“(Brussels) must take more responsibility on itself and the countries in the region. Sometimes I have the feeling that the politicians of some regional countries do not realize what a unique chance the EU offers them with the fact that their membership is guaranteed,” Lajčak said.
He said that the biggest problems from that point of view are found in Bosnia-Herzegovina.
