He further said that the de facto autonomy of this region still needs to gain international recognition.
"We are currently analyzing various variants under which the region could gain the recognition of the international community without appealing to the UN. We could take as an example the scenario of Moldavia [Transdniester], Abkhazia or South Ossetia," Bilal said at a news conference at Rossiya Segodnya news agency.
Another scenario could be a partial recognition of the region's autonomy, which could be then sealed by an international decision and a resolution, the way it happened with Kosovo, he said. However here the US and Turkey should play a certain role, which is not very clear at the moment.
Serbian leaders repeatedly stated that they do not recognize the independence of the region.
According to different estimates, the independence of Kosovo has been recognized by 100 or 110 UN member states, including the US and the leading Western European countries. Serbian authorities previously refuted the claims of Pristina (the capital and largest city within Kosovo) that its independence had been recognized by Oman, Guinea Bissau and Uganda. There had also been reports that other states voluntarily revoked their recognition.
