Moscow will insist on Resolution 1244 regarding Kosovo, Russian envoy says Izvor: N1

The Russian ambassador to Serbia Alexandar Bocan – Harchenko said on Wednesday that if his country was involved in solving the Kosovo issue, Moscow would insist on international law and still valid UN Security Council Resolution 1244 “or everything else would be in vain,” the FoNet news agency reported.

He told the Russian Sputnik media outlet that he did not see a favourable international situation for solving the Kosovo issue right now, "especially since the US and some other countries want a quick result."

Russia is a UN Security Council member and “we take a serious approach to every topic within the Council’s jurisdiction, and Kosovo is one of them."

 "Everything depends on the countries, people, efforts, wishes and goodwill. If all of that exists then the key states, and Serbia of course can and must solve that issue within the intentional law framework and based on the Resolution 1244 which still has the crucial role in resolving Kosovo problem," the ambassador said.

Bocan – Harchenko added that in case the Belgrade – Pristina dialogue on the normalisation of relations format was changed, it should be remembered that Russia is a UN Security Council member and “that we take a serious approach to every topic within the Council’s jurisdiction, and Kosovo is one of them."

"We must and want to take part, and we surely will consider it if Belgrade asks for it, but we don’t want and must not participate in something, some talks which are not founded in the international law,” the ambassador said.

He added that Moscow “will decisively looking for basics and pre-conditions within the framework of the Resolution 1244 because anything else would be in vain. It would be a needless repetition of a damaging process which won’t bear fruit,” Bocan – Harchenko told Sputnik.
