In Athens, Serbian Foreign Minister repeats his position that recognizing Macedonia’s name was a mistake (video)

Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic repeated his position that Serbia was wrong to recognize Macedonia under its constitutional name. During his visit to Athens, where he met his Greek counterpart Nikos Kotzias, Dacic said that Macedonia has always had a negative position toward the Serbian claim on Kosovo.

Macedonia recognized Kosovo’s independence and supported the push of the former Serbian province to join UNESCO, which angered many in Serbia. Dacic said that, therefore, it was not fair on Serbia’s part to recognize Macedonia as the Republic of Macedonia.
