Serbia should be the first to recognize an independent Kosova [Kosovo], because this would relieve it of the painful problem and open the doors of the international community, said the chairman of Kosova Association for Multi-Ethnic Cooperation NGO and former senior communist party official, Azem Vllasi. According to Vllasi, Serbia would get rid off an old and painful problem. It will not be able to resolve the problem in a favourable way, in a way beneficial to Serbia. Serbia could then enter the European integration much faster, Azem Vllasi assessed.
