“We will never recognize an independent Kosovo, and will therefore never agree to Kosovo’s membership in the United Nations. All else is only circumventing the procedure in which the Security Council has the last word,” the prime minister told reporters in the Serbian parliament.

Regarding a statement by Kosovo Foreign Minister Enver Hoxhaj that Pritiština will apply for membership of two or three UN agencies in the first half of 2014, Dačić said that such things cannot be done "without negotiations and agreement with Belgrade."

The prime minister stressed that Kosovo’s full-fledged membership of the UN cannot even be discussed as long as there are countries supporting the principled position of Serbia not to recognize the independence unilaterally proclaimed by ethnic Albanians in 2008.
