British Foreign Secretary William Hague started his official visit to Belgrade on Tuesday meeting with Serbian President Boris Tadic.Hague will also meet with Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ivica Dacic and Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic.

British Foreign Secretary William Hague will arrive in Belgrade Tuesday, where he will confer with Serbian officials on possible changes to the draft resolution on Kosovo-Metohija that Serbia submitted to the UN General Assembly.

The British minister's visit comes several days after the visit of German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle, who said in Belgrade that the resolution on Kosovo needs to be harmonized with the views of the EU and discussed in Brussels, not New York.

Serbia has expressed readiness to discuss possible changes to the resolution it submitted to the UN General Assembly.

President Boris Tadic said Saturday that Serbia is prepared to discuss possible changes to the resolution in both Brussels and Washington.

Tadic announced that in the coming days Serbia will send two delegations to Brussels and Washington to hold consultations on the resolution, but ruled out the possibility of compromise regarding the recognition of Kosovo's independence.

"Serbia will never recognize Kosovo," Tadic stressed. "That is the red line that we will not cross."

After the International Court of Justice came out with its advisory opinion, Serbia filed a draft resolution on Kosovo, which the UN General Assembly is set to debate on September 9.

In the resolution, Belgrade proposes opening a dialogue with Pristina on all issues, including Kosovo's self-proclaimed independence.

Serbian President Boris Tadic will meet with Hague on Tuesday, the president's office confirmed.

Hague will also meet with Prime Minister Mirko Cvetkovic, Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Ivica Dacic and Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic.

Sources in the Serbian government denied speculation that Hague was to bring an 'ultimatum' that Belgrade must withdraw its draft resolution. They say that the visit was arranged to 'clear misunderstandings' caused by the document.
