Kosovo's Status and Serbian Radical Party's Position

East Ethnia reports that Tomislav Nikolic, leader of extreme nationalist Serbian Radical Party, said that “if Kosovo were to be granted independence, Serbia should declare it to be ‘occupied territory,’ and should seek to recover it ‘by any means possible'” – and that prime minister Vojislav Kostunica had agreed to this action plan. The government is yet to react to this statement. (Vojislav Seselj mentioned in the post is the party's founder and is currently behind bars at the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia in the Hague.)
