Sanda Raskovic Ivic also said that Belgrade would have to acknowledge Kosovo's independence at some point in time at least tacitly, if not directly.
"Serbia will also have to establish cordial relations with Kosovo. To me this sounds like schizophrenia since you cannot establish friendly relations with yourself," she added.
"New chapters have been added to the negotiating dossier with the EU, but there is stagnation in many areas. Some processes are ongoing, but the real state of affairs is the following: those living in the Balkans are increasingly less inclined to support the EU, while all the crises plaguing the bloc have affected the Balkans," she said.
Dragojlovic suggested that double standards are the main reason behind the Serbs becoming less enthusiastic about the European integration project.
"A frozen conflict could easily unfreeze at any time. It all depends on those responsible for the stability and security of the region," she said. "For us the European Union is a political and economic issue, but we are important to them only in terms of security. They want their borders to be secure. They would not provoke tensions [in the Balkans]."
