Romania is one of five EU member-states that have not recognized Kosovo.
"In 2008 Romania decided not to recognize Kosovo. However, things have changed since then. Governments have changed and some new decision on the recognition of Kosovo could be made," Ponta said after a summit of heads of state of Southeastern Europe - according to Albanian language Pristina-based daily Epoka E Re.
The media in Kosovo are reporting that Ponta said his country would consider recognizing Kosovo "because many things have changed in Kosovo since 2008."
According to the paper, he "stressed that one of the main reasons is that Kosovo and Serbia are successfully conducting their dialogue."
