Russia's Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Wednesday the US was trying to revise a part of the Brussels Agreement dealing with the Community of Serb Municipalities (CSM) and thus "drag Kosovo into NATO" and keep their base there, the Srna news agency reported.

He said the CSM was agreed upon four years ago and that it guaranteed Kosovo Serbs their language, cultural and religious rights.

"This Community is not territorially compact since in the north (of Kosovo) the territories are close to one another, but there are also enclaves which are the part of CSM which has its flag, anthem and coat of arms. But, the agreement remains a dead letter," Lavrov told Moscow's Валдайj think-tank.

He added that "now there are attempts to change it with the US active involvement to secure the situation in which Kosovo could become NATO member together with the US largest base in Europe – Bondsteel."

Lavrov also said that the US and some of its European partners intended to "drag Bosnia and Herzegovina into NATO" as well.
