MADRID - Spanish Secretary of State for the EU Pascal Navarro said on Tuesday his government would not back an EU membership bid submitted by the so-called Kosovo as it did not recognise the territory as independent.

"Spain does not recognise Kosovo as independent and will therefore vote against any procedural decision and against giving Kosovo candidate status," the notimerica.com news portal quoted Navarro as telling a Senate commission on EU affairs.

"The government will not back the candidacy in the present circumstances, and that stance has not changed," Navarro noted.

Spain is one of the five EU member states that do not recognise the so-called Kosovo, alongside Greece, Cyprus, Romania and Slovakia.
