He said that "some want to undermine Serbia's position in Europe and worldwide".
“The recent events in Kosovo should be viewed in that context. We will do everything in our power to reach a compromise over the issue of customs stamps, but under no condition will we cross the red lines of our state policy,” Đelić said.
The incidents that happened in Kosovo were rather dramatic, and illustrate that unilateral decisions have no effect and cannot produce a solution, he said.
“We stand ready to do everything within our power to find a solution for Kosovo's representation in the international organizations, but it has to be in line with Serbia's state interests,” Đelić added.
The dialogue between Serbian government representatives and those of the Kosovo Albanians started in March, and is being held in Brussels.
