(ANSA) - PRISTINA, 13 APR - Spain and Romania are not changing their stance against recognizing Kosovo's independence.

Pristina TV station Rtk reported, giving an account of the response of the two countries foreign ministries when asked about their respective positions regarding the Kosovo dossier after the understanding reached in Ohrid on March 18.

Madrid and Bucharest support the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina and the European proposal for an agreement but show no signs of changing their position on the 'no' to Kosovo independence, Rtk reported. Greece is also in the same stance as Spain and Romania, and President Katerina Sakellaropoulou confirmed this during a recent visit to Belgrade.

Even Cyprus and Slovakia do not recognize Pristina's independence. Rtk underlined that there had been no new recognition of Kosovo for over two years. On the number of countries that have recognized Kosovo, there is a disagreement between Belgrade and Pristina, with the Serbian side talking about less than ninety recognitions, whereas, according to the Kosovo leadership, it would be more than a hundred out of the total of 193 countries represented at the UN.
