Aleksandar Vucic said on Tuesday after his meeting with Angela Merkel that he had “understood all messages” and would work to solve the Kosovo problem.


Speaking in Berlin, Vucic said that a “difficult” road to the EU lies ahead of Serbia, that much has to be done when it comes to (accession negotiations) chapters dealing with the rule of law, but also when it comes to relations with Pristina.

“I told her that it is more important to love the land of one’s children than of one’s ancestors. Serbia is ready for a solution, but the solution is in both sides losing something,” he said.

According to him, “it may be better if nobody is satisfied” – because there are “many difficult solutions, while for Serbia the only difficult one is that where Serbia is the only loser.”


“We know what difficult tasks are ahead of Serbia, I am grateful to Merkel for the support… We believe in compromise, not in unilateral solutions, we believe that Germany’s support, which will be even more powerful under Angela Merkel’s leadership, will find solutions,” Vucic said.

After her meeting with the Serbian president, the German chancellor said that “EU accession negotiations “can be successful with further reforms in the domain of the rule of law and in the light of the issue of relations with Kosovo.”
