“Serbian First Deputy PM and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic says that Pristina is currently on the defensive.

‘its officials are visiting countries that have recognized Kosovo to ensure they would not withdraw that recognition.’

‘It’s important because of the negotiating position, because in Pristina they say, ‘why do we have to negotiate with you when 116 states recognize us.’ They nailed that list, hung it on the door – and it’s a big lie, as some countries have withdrawn their recognition,’ said Dacic.

According to him, Pristina is now ‘on a big defensive, not understanding realistically the situation they’re in, and spending most of the time with those countries that have recognized Kosovo, so they don’t withdraw it.'”(B92)
