Slovak FM Mikulas Dzurinda stressed at the meeting with Serbian Prime Minister Mirko Cvetković that the Slovak government will not consider recognizing Kosovo. He also said that Bratislava supports the initiation of the dialogue between Belgrade and Priština.
According to a release by the office for cooperation with the media, Cvetković expressed gratitude for Slovakia’s support to Serbia on its Eurointegration path, as well as for Slovakia’s consistent stand not to recognize Kosovo’s unilaterally declared independence.
At the meeting, the officials agreed that the two countries are constantly improving their overall bilateral relations, especially in the domain of economy which gives ample room for further enhancement of cooperation.
During his one-day visit to Serbia, Dzurinda will give a speech on Serbia’s EU perspective at the conference “Serbia on the road to Europe – 10 years after”. The Slovak official will also confer with Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremić.
