Committee chairman talks solution for Kosovo issue
BELGRADE -- An initial and final key prerequisite for resolving the Kosovo issue is that Serbia will never recognize the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo.

This is according to Serbian parliament's Committee on Kosovo Chairman Milovan Drecun.
“Serbia will seek a solution within its internationally recognized borders and UNSC Resolution 1244 in the EU-mediated dialogue with Priština, and there is also a possibility that an international conference will take place due to high involvement of strong centers of power in the world,” Drecun said.
He told Belgrade-based TV Pink that this was the framework for seeking the final solution for the status of Kosovo and for an attempt of a comprehensive protection of Kosovo Serbs.
Drecun also said that the Serbs would build their own institutions in the enclaves, which would be financed by Belgrade, until a solution for the final status of the province was found.
“We will also take care of the specific position of the Serbs in northern Kosovo, since their position in terms of security is different from the situation of the other Serbs in the province,” he stressed.
Drecun announced that Serbia would also demand that its cultural heritage and state property in Kosovo be protected and that a favorable milieu for the development of comprehensive economic relations between Kosovo and central Serbia be created.
"We have to stabilize our relations with Kosovo and Metohija," he said, and added that absence of dialogue with Priština would soon lead to realization of the project of a Greater Albania.
