And it does not even plan to do it, he added, according to daily Blic.

"We did not recognize Kosovo and, as far as I know, our stance on this issue will not change," Nahshon told the Serbian media in Israel, adding that relations between Israel and Serbia are excellent, the newspaper has reported.

Referring to Serbia's vote in the UN on the issue of Palestine, Nahshon said that they "expect friends to vote in a friendly manner" and that "whoever recognizes Palestine, is doing no service to the peace negotiations between Palestine and Israel."

"Recognizing Palestine does not help negotiations, so each step, such as recognition or opening of a Palestinian embassy in a particular country, postpones the peace solution, and that's what everyone should know," the Israeli spokesman concluded.
