Without recognising Kosovo, Serbia cannot join the EU, says a member of Angela Merkel’s party. According to the Bundestag deputy and CDU member Peter Bayer, Kosovo is de facto independent and Serbia should recognize it. Otherwise, Serbia will not be able to join the EU, Bayer said during a visit to Belgrade, the Deutsche Welle reported. He said Germany was against the ideas of border correction and the carving-up of territory. The Serbian media described these comments as a “cold shower for Belgrade”, noting that it was the first time that a German official had named the recognition of Kosovo as a precondition for Serbia’s accession to the EU.
