From Madrid they state that the approach to Belgrade and Priština will be very constructive and that they are aware of the importance of maintaining contact on both sides.

- They are required to accept the inevitability of an agreement that respects international law, even with the difficult tasks this will entail - said Patricia Tortosa from the information office of the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs. 

Tortosa emphasised that Spain's attitude towards the independence of the so-called Kosovo remains unchanged. While explaining such an official position of Madrid, she stated that it is in accordance with international law and its basic principles, and emphasised that the declaration of independence was an act contrary to international law.

Regarding some media reports that Spain will open an office for trade and culture in Priština, Tortosa said that "there is nothing to report".

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the temporary institutions in Priština confirmed that the position of Spain towards Kosovo and Metohija has not changed, but they claim that there are contacts between Priština and Madrid, according to Gazeta.

Spain is one of the five members of the European Union that does not recognise the unilaterally declared independence of the so-called Kosovo.
