"Dacic decided to resume with fabrications and falsifications in relation to Kosovo. After the previous forgeries that returned to him as a boomerang, he presented a document that was prepared who knows where, about the alleged withdrawal of recognition," Pacolli, who serves as Kosovo's foreign minister, wrote to Facebook.
He said that Kosovo through its diplomatic service "maintains constant contact with all countries of the world, including Papua New Guinea."
"Dacic's slander is now considered to be disgusting, especially after the case of Liberia, Guinea-Bissau, Ghana. In the coming days, through diplomatic channels, Kosovo will confirm this and will continue the unstoppable strengthening and consolidating of itself as a state, whether Belgrade wants it or not," wrote Pacolli.
Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic on Thursday announced that Papua New Guinea was the sixth country to revoke recognition of Kosovo. He did this in the northern town of Subotica, as the Serbian government was marking its first year in office.
Dacic on the occasion also "preemptively" mentioned Pacolli, saying that each time a country revokes its recognition of Kosovo, Pristina "refutes that and lies."
