Keywords: Serbia and Kosovo;
Summary/Abstract: Serbian government elected in spring 2009 retained an ambivalent attitude towards the Kosovo issue – an attitude best reflected in the Democratic Party’s /DS/ slogan “Both Kosovo and EU.” The cabinet relocated “defense of Kosovo” to the domain of the international law (UN, ICJ) intent to either prevent or slow down the process of recognition of the newly born state. The entire initiative is actually an attempt at returning the Kosovo status to a negotiating table and extorting Kosovo’s partition.
