BELGRADE (Sputnik) — Earlier in the day, Kosovo President Hashim Thaci held meetings with European Council President Donald Tusk, European Commission head Jean-Claude Juncker and European Parliament President Antonio Tajani in Brussels.
"We are in talks with Pristina, and although the European Union is fully on their side, it should be clear that we will never recognize the independence of Kosovo and Metohija," Nikolic said as quoted by the presidential press service.
Kosovo unilaterally proclaimed independence from Serbia in 2008 and is recognized by over 100 UN member states. Serbia, as well as Russia do not recognize Kosovo’s independence. The EU-brokered Belgrade-Pristina dialogue concentrates on cooperation, freedom of movement and legislation.
