Bulgaria: Serbia Declares Macedonia-Kosovo Border Agreement Void

The Serbian government does not recognize the agreement signed between Macedonia and Kosovo for the resolving of the two state’s border dispute.

“The signing of this agreement is useless because Macedonia will have to negotiate with Belgrade on that issue,” said Oliver Ivanovic, State Secretary of Serbia’s Foreign Ministry, as quoted by BGNES.

In his words, Macedonia and Kosovo signed the agreement under pressure by foreigners who did not account for the fact that this may worsen the already complex relations between Serbia and Macedonia.

Earlier on Sunday the Foreign Ministries of Macedonia and Kosovo announced the resolution of the bilateral border dispute, and the establishing of diplomatic relations.

Serbia has not recognized Kosovo’s independence, and is considering it part of its territory.

Kosovo was part of Serbia as an autonomous district (pokrajina). But anyway Kosovo and FRYOM were not really considered as part of Yugoslavia.

The sooner Serbia accepts the fact, the better for the country. Two independent countries settled their border dispute. This has nothing to do with Serbia. Kosova was a part of Yugoslavia, not of Serbia. With the dismantling of Yugoslavia, Kosova had the legal right to declare independence. This is also clear according to the old Yugoslav constitution.
