Serbian Foreign Minister, Ivica Dacic, in a press conference on Thursday alleged that Papua New Guinea has revoked Kosovo’s recognition becoming the sixth country to do so. But Kosovo Foreign Minister, Behgjet Pacolli, rebutted Dacic’s claims, saying that Dacic continues spreading fake news against Kosovo’s statehood.
“Dacic has decided once again to continue with slanderous statements and falsifications towards Kosovo. After recent falsifications which returned to him as boomerang, he presented a document alleging withdrawal of recognitions,” Pacolli wrote in his Facebook profile. He was referring to a “verbal note” that Dacic presented recently in Belgrade claiming that Liberia has revoked Kosovo’s recognition. But this has triggered the Government of Liberia to react and issue a press release reaffirming that they have not revoked Kosovo’s recognition as alleged by Dacic and media in Belgrade. According to Pacolli, the diplomatic service of the Republic of Kosovo is in continuous contacts with all countries of the world noting that “Kosovo has excellent relations with Papua New Guinea.”
“Dacic’s defamations are considered as disgusting, especially after the cases with Liberia, Guinea Bissau, Ghana and other countries. Everything will be cleared in coming days through the diplomatic channels. The consolidation of the Kosovo’s statehood is irreversible process,” Pacolli wrote. Pacolli said earlier that Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic continues spreading fake news noting that no country has revoked Kosovo’s recognition as alleged by Belgrade.
