Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic says Serbia will not recognize Kosovo for the sake of joining the EU.

Speaking in Buenos Aires, where he will on Wednesday attend the naming of one of the city’s squares after the Republic of Serbia, Dacic added that full membership in the EU is his country’s absolute foreign policy priority.

In a speech at the Argentinean Council for International Relations (CARDI), Dacic stressed that Serbia finds the support of Argentina for its efforts to preserve sovereignty and territorial integrity particularly important.

‘We want to reach agreement, we want a just and lasting solution, but to have to recognize unilateral acts – never, not even at the cost of failing to join the European Union. We owe a great debt of gratitude to our friends who help us in this regard, in terms of their political support for our position, and I count Argentina among them, as one of the most important partners (of Serbia),’ said Dacic.
