… In any case we sense an evolution of language among the Serbs.

« Serbia is not against the presence of an EU civilian mission on its territory, but the approval of Serbia and the UN Security Council is essential ", has just declared, in Moscow, on July 17, the Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Vuk Jeremic following a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov.

According to the Novosti news agency, he added: “ Serbia will not take any decision that undermines its sovereignty, violates UN Security Council Resolution 1244 or is not the result of negotiations and compromise ". Before explaining that the sending of a civilian mission to the Serbian province with an Albanian majority of Kosovo, which unilaterally proclaimed its independence on February 17, had to be decided during negotiations. “This is the only way to ensure stability in Kosovo.”
