NATO started bombing the next afternoon, on March 24, 1999. The air campaign lasted 78 days until Milosevic surrendered. I was proud of America for going to war to stop the genocide in Kosovo.
This week is the 20-year anniversary of NATO's intervention. Kosovo is free and independent. That can't be reversed.
First Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic assessed on Friday that Burundi, with its decision last year's to withdraw recognition of Kosovo, has contributed to a change in the balance of powers in the international arena and the position of Serbia in the negotiation process, the Serbian government announced.
Dacic told Gil that Serbias and Venezuelas relations are characterized by a long friendship, reflected in mutual support on the international plan, expressing appreciation for the country's principled position (non-recognition) on Kosovo and Metohija, as well as voting against the so-called "Kosovo" in Interpol and UNESCO.
This is what the president told Politico on the sidelines of the recent Munich Conference, the Brussels-based website is reporting.
"I believe in someone's legacy, that's what I would like to see," he is quoted as saying.
He also "stressed that a deal had to be done, Otherwise we'll face a catastrophe."
