Voldner, who is Secretary of State for European and International Affairs, said at the summit that the Austrian government believes that Serbia should become a candidate for EU membership and start negotiations as soon as possible, but it is necessary to resolve the territorial conflict with neighboring countries.
According to him, Kosovo independence is a reality, and the division is not an option and as soon as possible we should find a formula for the solution to the north of Kosovo.
After his speech, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ivica Dacic said "Now so that Russian Ambassador Alexander Konuzin wouldn't have to react, I will."
He recalled that first Serbia was divided, in order to come later to the view that "there is no division".
"You talk about reality and reality of an independent Kosovo and that the division is not an option ... I remind you that first Serbia has been divided and then occurred the view that there would be no division. That firstly Serbian borders were changed, and then it was said no more border changes. Of the entire Communist, Tito's legacy, you only saved the borders, "said Dacic, according to Tanjug.
"The Albanians did not want to live in Serbia and I admit them that right, but Serbs do not want to live in an independent Kosovo. I expect that You as a Democrat, acknowledge them the same right. "
Dacic said that no country on the path towards the EU did not have to negotiate "what to do with a part of its territory."
"We are ready to negotiate even about it. You say that for the violence in northern Kosovo is responsibility of criminals, but crime in the north is child's play compared to crime in Pristina."
"If Thaci wins Kosovo north militarily, are we to remain silent in order to enter the EU? "- Asked Dacic.
According to him, the current reality is that there are two Kosovo: the Serbian and the Albanian. "Your policy all these years has recognized the reality and eventually it will aknowledge this reality."
"It is important to resolve Kosovo's status with the consent of the country from which it is secessioned and this is beneficial for all of you, because every one of you has its own Kosovo, it's only a matter of time when it will be your turn "

He pointed out that the ethnic cleansing that has been going on for centuries has been legalized "but they can not take away from us the Serbian territories, the Serbian part of Kosovo, and this should be our red line". (the obvious question that arises is what Serbian territories does official Belgrade consider "Serbian red line"? Is it only North Kosovo? What about the Serbs living in other enclaves in Kosovo? He says that genocide that has been going on for centuries, has been legalized, and as a true member of legally and morally bending government, he dares not raise his voice against it, but rather goes along with it, speaking of some 'red line' that nobody ever asked the people living in Kosovo, where it should be placed...)
