At a joint press conference with Tajani at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Dacic expressed his gratitude to Italy for supporting Serbia in European integration, with the message that Belgrade is vitally interested in a peaceful solution to the problems in Kosovo and Metohija.
We participate in the negotiation process with Pristina even when we do not like the solutions offered, said Dacic, stressing that the possibility of Serbia agreeing to the admission of "Kosovo" to the United Nations is excluded.
According to him, Serbia is ready to contribute to resolving the situation peacefully.
The other side does not want that because the goal is to submit the north of Kosovo and Metohija to the sovereignty of Pristina, he said.
The First Deputy Prime Minister also pointed out that the visit to Tajani is a strong impulse for the development of bilateral relations between the two countries, which are otherwise good, but need to be further improved.
Serbia is ready to further develop bilateral relations starting from the political sphere to economic relations, development of our foreign trade exchange and further increase of Italian investments in Serbia, said the First Deputy Prime Minister.
Tajani pointed out that Italy will do everything it can to reduce tensions in Kosovo and Metohija.
Unilateral initiatives cannot lead to a solution to the problem, Tajani said.
The Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy stated that that Italy appreciates the constructive position that Serbia presented in Brussels on Monday regarding the situation in Kosovo and Metohija.
He announced that today and in Pristina he will say that unilateral moves and initiatives are not needed.
Peace is something we must preserve. We will do everything in our power to reduce tensions in that part of the Balkans, he emphasised.
I am very pleased to be in Belgrade today because I have only heard words of praise from Serbian officials addressed to the Italian soldiers who are keeping the peace in Kosovo, and this is proof that Italy can play a positive role in keeping the peace in the Balkans, Tajani said.
He assessed that Serbia, like Italy, pays great attention to the issue of migration and that the Serbian authorities are aware of the dangers and risks that migration brings.
Also, the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy added that he discussed with Dacic holding a business forum in Belgrade in order to organise a meeting of representatives of Serbian and Italian companies.
