Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic stated, after a telephone conversation with his Hungarian counterpart Péter Szijjártó, that Hungary will vote against Kosovo's membership in the Council of Europe.

Dacic posted on his Instagram profile that he had a substantive telephone conversation with Szijjártó in which he conveyed to the Hungarian Foreign Minister that Serbia consistently advocates for de-escalation, preserving peace and stability in the region, as well as respecting previously agreed-upon agreements.

"Minister Szijjártó reiterated to me that Hungary is interested in the success of the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, but Kosovo's ongoing intention to join international organizations does not help this process. He confirmed that Hungary will vote against Kosovo's membership in the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe and will not support the resolution on Srebrenica in the UN, nor any proposal that would lead to further escalation of tensions in the region," Dacic stated.

He added that they also discussed the process of Serbia's integration into the European Union, which, as he assessed, remains the priority goal of Serbia's foreign policy.
