Serbia's FM lobbying in Africa against Kosovo recognition


Serbia's Foreign minister is lobbying against recognition of Kosovo that declared independence in 2008.

Foreign minister Vuk Jeremic on Thursday attended at the opening of the African Union's annual summit in Ethiopian capital Addis Ababa.

I have come here today to plead that you maintain your "principled reservation" on the Kosovo issue, Foreign minister Vuk Jeremic told delegates
A number of nations send observer delegations to the AU's annual summit.

Jeremic told the African leaders that independence for Kosovo would be "a dangerous threat" to a continent with so many rebel groups and civil wars.

"Imagine how many states of this great continent would be affected by the legitimization of forcible partition?" Jeremic said.

Kosovo's declaration of independence so far has been recognised by 63 states.
