Serbian Interior Minister says the country can survive without EU

Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dačić says Serbia should not recognize the unilateral declaration of independence of Kosovo “even if this means not joining the EU”.

“If the price is for Serbia to give up Kosovo to gain membership in the EU, it should never be accepted because there are national and state interests and Serbia can survive without the EU,” Dačić stressed on Monday in Trebinje, while attending the RS Interior Ministry patron saint day.

The minister said many EU members wanted Serbia to recognize Kosovo, denouncing this as “unprincipled and hypocritical.”
