  • [01] Serbia's Tadic in Athens

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greek President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias on Tuesday met with visiting Serb President Boris Tadic, who is carrying out an official visit to Greece.

    During their meeting they discussed Serbia's European prospects, Kosovo, the dispute over the name of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (fYRoM) and bilateral economic and cultural relations.

    In statements afterward, the two leaders reaffirmed the excellent relations between the two peoples and their leadership and said they had a shared outlook regarding the future of the region.

    On Kosovo, Papoulias repeated Greece's position in favour of "finding a mutually acceptable solution based on international law, the principle of territorial integrity, and which is the result of dialogue and negotiations".

    Tadic thanked Greece for its stance and said his country would continue to have a policy that was friendly toward Kosovo but would in no way recognise Kosovo's independence. Once the international court had issued its verdict, Serbia was ready to negotiate again on Kosovo's future, he added.
