Belgrade: More pressure will be exerted upon us to recognize Kosovo

Serbian Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ivica Dacic said that there is a group of EU countries that, while giving the candidate status to Serbia, would like in turn to gain Serbia’s recognition of Kosovo’s unilateral independence.

If this is a condition, we better part from one another as soon as possible, said Dacic.

"In the coming years, we should expect even more pressure to recognize Kosovo and therefore new talks on boundary demarcation should be initiated," Dacic said in an interview for the Belgrade based "Novosti" Daily.

He said he fears of forced integration of the north of Kosovo and that therefore, Serbia must do everything to save its people.
