Serbia has demanded an explanation from the United States over reports that Washington is ready to recognize Kosovo if its separatist leadership declares independence, the foreign minister was quoted as saying Sunday.
Vuk Jeremic was quoted as telling B92 television that Belgrade requested a formal explanation from the US embassy in Belgrade and expected an answer in few days.
"The American embassy is consulting with Washington at the moment and we expect to receive an explanation soon," Jeremic said.
On Saturday, Prime Minister Vojislav Kostunica warned the United States against recognizing Kosovo and urged the United Nations to take measures against what he termed US "policies of force."
