President Aleksandar Vučić has said that German Chancellor Angela Merkel has always been fair to Serbia, although she does not support Belgrade with regard to the Kosovo issue as it is, according to the German leader, “a done deal, an independent state”. 

“She has also been fair in relation to the Kosovo issue, she is not siding with us, but she was absolutely fair when we last talked in Davos (in January 2019). Then, she told me: ‘I do not know what to tell you at this moment, you should be looking for how to preserve peace and stability and how to push forward’,” Vučić told TV Happy on Monday evening.

The Serbian president said that “there is no doubt” that Germany “was upset” with the White House meeting between him and then Kosovo President Hashim Thaci set for early July, but postponed due to the war crimes indictment against Thaci.

Given the “great antagonism” between Germany and the US President Donald Trump’s administration, this was understandable, he added. (EURACTIV.rs  betabriefing.com)
