Belgrade, February 13 – NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General Javier Kolomina said that NATO supports the West’s “Franco-German” plan for a settlement in Kosovo and Metohija, and expects Serbia’s leadership to support it as well.
Kolomina was received on Monday in Belgrade by Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic and First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic.

I have informed your president and the head of diplomacy Dacic that NATO will support this plan,” Kolomina told reporters. European Union”.
The Council (Parliament) of Serbia, after two days of discussion with the participation of the President, on February 3, approved the annual report of the government on the negotiations on Kosovo and Metohija and on the situation in the province. The President of Serbia announced to the parliamentarians 10 points for the country’s leadership program in the face of external pressures. Among them are maintaining peace and stability, demanding the formation of a community of Serb communities in Kosovo and Metohija, ensuring the security of Kosovo Serbs, attracting foreign investment to Serbia, and so on.
Vucic repeatedly reiterated that he “will never recognize Kosovo’s independence and is against Pristina’s entry into the United Nations”.
