President of Serbia's Atlantic Council, Vladan Zivulovic, says that those in Serbia who argue for Serbia's military neutrality are, in fact, creating a "black hole" in the region.
"Albania passed us.
decides to join NATO, Albania can now put a veto and condition us to recognize Kosovo," says Zivulovic
As new members of NATO, Albania is also in a position to send its own troops to Kosovo under auspices of peacekeeping.
Analysts argue that this would represent a "Silent" annexation of Serbian land.
"Now we have 40,000 soldiers, but analysis says that we need twice as many to keep our neutrality... and no help will come to us from Russia because between us and Russia are several neutral or NATO members," says Zivulovic
