Tadić was also "asking the international community to respect Serbia's dignity", Beta news agency is reporting today.
He told a news conference in Belgrade that Serbia was "not ready to cross red lines" when it came to Kosovo, and that the country insists on UN principles.
This means that international and regional gatherings cannot be used to implicitly or explicitly recognize non-existent states, the president explained.
"Serbia is turned towards European values and goals, and those also mean respecting the dignity of the Serb nation and the Serb state. For this reason, we expect and demand, from all international factors, to respect the dignity of our state when it comes to Kosovo and Metohija, and this is something we will not give up on," said Tadić.
Asked about the forthcoming EU-Western Balkans summit in Sarajevo, Bosnia, Tadić said that Serbia was ready to find a practical solution for participation of all those included in the decision making process in the region in order to solve regional problems, "so that we all can move toward EU membership".
