Russian Ambassador: No overnight solution for Kosovo issue Izvor: N1

The Kosovo issue is very complex and it is impossible to find a solution to it overnight, Russian Ambassador to Serbia, Alexander Chepurin, said on Saturday.

Chepurin said that the platform which Pristina recently adopted was completely unrealistic and that, at the current moment, the only solution according to international law was the UN Security Council Resolution 1244, which in 1999 placed the former Serbian province under UN jurisdiction.

“We support Serbia unconditionally, and Serbs will decide their interests, positions and possibilities by themselves. That cannot be decided unexpectedly in hallways, it is difficult to imagine,” the Ambassador told Sputnik.

“It is clear what some sponsors of Pristina want - a fast capitulation, but that is an issue which will hardly suit Belgrade,” he added.

Chepurin also said it was difficult for him to comment a statement by the European Parliament Rapporteur for Serbia, David McAllister, who said it would make sense to involve Russia in the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, because it is unclear who he is, what his competencies are, and in whose name he voiced that proposal.
