Redrawing the borders will not solve any problems but would lead to ethnic recriminations, said German Minister for Europe, Michael Roth.

The minister addressed “friends in Kosovo and Serbia” on his Twitter profile amidst the raised discussion on Kosovo and allegations on possible territory swap between these two countries, which triggered harsh reactions in the neighbourhood and international circles.

“Such a move would open a Pandora's box of ethnic recriminations,” the German official warned.

“The future of the Western Balkans is just a multi-ethnic, -religious and -cultural one. United in diversity, that's Europe,” he concluded.
