Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić met with Kosovo President Hasim Thaci in Vienna last Friday. Austrian Chancellor Sebastjan Kurz and European Commissioner Johannes Hahn also attended the meeting. “I hope we can continue the talks.

However, Vučić still estimates that there is a will to reach a solution. Meanwhile, the Serbian Foreign Minister and President of the SPS Ivica Dačić stated during the weekend that Serbia will never recognise the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo, although many would like to do just that, according to his words.
