Romania reiterates backing over Kosovo, EU

Serbian President Boris Tadić met on Thursday in Belgrade with visiting Romanian Foreign Minister Teodor Baconschi. The Serbian president thanked Baconschi for the firm support Romania is giving Serbia on its EU integrations road.

During the meeting, Baconschi stressed that his country also strongly supports Serbia’s territorial integrity and sovereignty, Tadić’s press office said in a statement.

Romania is one of the five EU countries that have not recognized the Kosovo Albanian unilateral declaration of independence.

The two officials discussed bilateral relations and Serbia’s EU integration concluding that relations between the two countries are at a high level but that the economic cooperation needs to be forwarded, reads the statement.

Baconschi arrived here on Thursday on his first official visit to Serbia since he took over as Romanian foreign minister in December 2009.

Earlier in the day, Baconschi met with his Serbian counterpart Vuk Jeremič, and is also scheduled to meet with other Serbian officials.
