"Serbia will not change its policy towards Kosovo...But the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Serbia cannot be jeopardized, or in other words the future status of Kosovo has to be determined through negotiations," Jeremic said ahead of a series of meetings with Slovenian officials in Ljubljana.  

Serbian Foreign Minister will visit Slovenia just a day after talks with his German counterpart Frank-Walter Steinmayer in Berlin.

Once again, Jeremic underlined the need for continued talks between Belgrade and Pristina on future status of Kosovo within the frameworks of the United Nations, and warned that the future EU missions have to be deployed as a part of compromise solution reached through negotiations.
