Belgrade, 16 August 2015 (MIA) - Serbia's First Deputy Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic has said that it would be better for UNESCO not to open Pandora's box with Kosovo's potential admission to membership, Tanjug reports.
“If Kosovo joins now, next time this will be some other region that is not recognized by the United Nations. That is why it is important for UNESCO not to open Pandora's box. As far as we are concerned, nothing will surprise us. That would not be the first time that international law and the rule of law is violated,” Dacic said in an interview to Belgrade-based broadsheet Politika.
He underscores that Serbia will do everything in its power to ensure that does not happen.
“That is why I urged, in consultations with Serbian Prime Minister (Aleksandar) Vucic, everyone, our entire society, the Serbian Orthodox Church, all other religious communities, the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts, Matica Srpska, distinguished individuals in the diaspora and everywhere to make their voice heard and that we join forces against that decision,” the Serbian foreign minister said.
Dacic said earlier that Kosovo sent its application directly to UNESCO, after the United Nations refused to forward it. The final decision on this matter should be made by the organization in November. ik/13:16
