BELGRADE - Czech President Milos Zeman on Wednesday announced in Belgrade he would in a month's time raise the question of whether it was possible to revoke the recognition of Kosovo's independence by the Czech Republic.

Zeman was speaking at a press conference after a meeting with Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic.

When asked if Serbia could expect an EU member state to reconsider and review its position on Kosovo's independence, Zeman responded he was not a dictator and could not impose his own views but that what he could do was to raise the question at a Prague meeting of the Czech Republic's constitutional authorities in a month's time.

"I am glad Defence Minister Lubomir Metnar has said recognising Kosovo was a mistake. He will probably be on my side - we will see who will be on the other side," Zeman said.

Zeman does not share the position of the Czech government, which recognises Kosovo's self-declared independence.

Vucic noted Serbia was grateful to Zeman for his views on Kosovo-Metohija and added that he had briefed the Czech president on the problems Serbia was facing.
