BELGRADE - Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic's meeting with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo demonstrates Washington has changed its approach to solving the Kosovo issue and that the US is pushing for a compromise solution that would also take Serbia's interests into account, says Serbian FM Ivica Dacic.

"One should not think the US has changed its position on Kosovo's independence", he told Tanjug Wednesday, but noted that US national security adviser John Bolton, State Secretary Pompeo, Vice President Michael Pence and President Donald Trump himself "believe further negotiations are necessary and that compromise must be sought."

Commenting on Tuesday's Vucic-Pompeo meeting and the messages that have since been coming in from New York, Dacic said Washington was representing "our position that the Kosovo issue has not been solved."

"That is a major thing and a big change compared to the claims that were coming from the former US administration," he said.
