Dacic: Kosovo status not done deal

Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic has stated that pressure that is being exerted on Serbia is obvious but that status of Kosovo is still not finished.

"If the status had been final, such a big effort for Serbia to accept compromise regarding the resolution probably wouldn't have been made," he said.
"It means that there is a significant number of states that are not benevolent toward the independence," the interior minister told daily Vecernje novosti.

Dacic also points out that if the talks failed and the Albanians attempted to annex northern Kosovo by force, it would spark a strong reaction from Serbia.

"Such attack would be one more genocide against our people and it would provoke a big reaction from Serbia. And I'm also afraid that election campaigns in Kosovo certainly will not contribute to peaceful solutions, regardless of our position on the need for dialogue," the interior minister concluded.
