He made this statement for the Belgrade-based daily Danas.

Asked whether the Greek foreign minister's recent statements in Pristina about Athens supporting Kosovo's membership in international organizations "meant a step in the direction of recognizing Kosovo," the diplomat said that his country's position on this issue "remains unchanged."

Economides added that Minister Nikolaos Kotzias' statements made in Pristina were "very clear."

Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic said on Thursday he was aware of the pressure Greece is under to recognize Kosovo, but that he believes it would not happen.
