Serbian ambassador returns to the Czech Republic

06-08-2008

The Serbian ambassador to the Czech Republic Vladimir Vereš returned to the country Wednesday after a three month absence. The ambassador was recalled to Belgrade in protest at Czech recognition of the independent state of Kosovo. Since July, Serbia has had a new pro-European government which is seeking to improve ties with the EU. Kosovo has so far been recognised by around 40 countries and was recognised by the Czech Republic on 21 May 2008.
