Before entering the European Union, Serbia should fully normalize relations with Kosovo, and it would be confirmed by a legally binding document, said Austrian Foreign Minister Sebastian Kurz in an interview with NIN.

– It isn’t in the interest of the EU to fully accept members which are in conflict with the neighboring countries, because it would mean “import” of instability – said Kurtz, adding that Brussels is ready to assist and facilitate the process.

According to Kurtz, there is a possibility that Serbia would be forced to disassociate itself from Russia before entering the EU in order to adopt the foreign policy views of Brussels.
