But he added that he will not allow this wide gap to eliminate the possibility of overcoming past differences.
Serbia is not thinking about recognizing Kosovo's independence, he said, adding that this is only being discussed in Tirana and Pristina.
No one has spoken about recognition. This was not tabled in the talks in Brussels, Belgrade or anywhere else. This is only discussed here in Tirana and Pristina, Vucic said in an interview for Albanian TV Top Channel.
The Serbian prime minister denied that it was previously agreed that Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama would refrain from issuing statements about Kosovo in Tirana unlike six months ago in Belgrade.
No, by no means. We were sincere. He maintained his stances, while I kept mine, we were concentrated on the future, Vucic said.
I believe that this visit was beneficial for both sides, Albania and Serbia. We should improve our relations and strengthen political stability in the Western Balkans, the prime minister said.
