At a joint press conference of Dacic and President of the Republic of Palau Thomas Remengesau Jr., a note was issued stating that the Republic of Palau believes that it should support the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina in the future, with EU mediation, rather than defining the status of Kosovo before the end of the dialogue.
Dacic stated that Palau is the thirteenth country to review its position on accepting the unilaterally proclaimed independence of Kosovo, the third from the Pacific region, and added that we are close to the situation where less than half of the members of the United Nations recognise that independence.
The First Deputy Prime Minister said he thinks that it is possible that 101 countries recognised Kosovo, which is less than a half of the members of the UN, and not 116 countries, as Pristina is claiming.
This is a help to end the dialogue with a compromise, Dacic said, and said that he wants the dialogue to continue, but that he also expects the tariffs to be abolished.
Remengesau Jr . said that his country knows little about the situation in this part of the world, but it is clear that the situation with Kosovo is seeking dialogue and understanding, because, as he explained, he does not want the same to happen in his country and region, on the islands.
