BELGRADE -- Romanian Ambassador to Serbia Ion Makovei today commented on his country’s position regarding the deployment of EULEX.
Makovei stated that Romania will not take part in the European Union mission in Kosovo if the mission intends to implement the plan drawn up by former UN envoy Martti Ahtisaari.
In an interview with International Radio of Serbia, the ambassador said that Bucharest supports Serbia's stands on the need for EULEX to be status-neutral.
“Romania believes that EULEX should assume the obligations that the UN mission in Kosovo has had so far,” Makovei said.
Romania is one of the EU countries that have not recognized Kosovo Albanians’ unilateral declaration of independence.
