Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said there will be no recognition of the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo by Belgrade, a compromise is needed.

His remarks came after a meeting with representatives of the EU, Germany and France.

"Talking about the future of Serbia, there will be no recognition of Kosovo! Right now we are talking with the EU Special Representative for dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina and other regional issues of the Western Balkans Miroslav Lajčák and with foreign and security policy advisors of France and Germany Emmanuel Bohn and Jens Pletner, always ready for compromise solutions, according to the Serbian Constitution and UN Security Council Resolution 1244," Vucic wrote on Instagram and posted a photo from the meeting.

The Serbian leader's administration said Friday that he had scheduled a National Security Council meeting for Saturday morning, the main topic of which will be the situation in Kosovo and Metohija.

Belgrade and Pristina, with EU mediation, reached a compromise on August 27 on the entry and exit of Serbs and Albanians from central Serbia to Kosovo and Metohija with Serbian and Kosovo Albanian ID cards. At the same time, at the checkpoints it was made clear that the use of the Pristina-issued ID cards was purely for practical reasons, for the sake of individual relief and could not be interpreted as recognition by Belgrade of Kosovo's unilateral declaration of independence.

At the same time, authorities in Pristina are requiring local Serbs to re-register by October 31 vehicles with license plates issued by the Serbian authorities with the letters "KM", to plates with the Kosovo symbol RKS.
