Russian ambassador calls for respect of UN SC resolution 1244 on Kosovo Izvor: N1

Russia’s Ambassador in Belgrade Alexander Botsan Harchenko told the Sputnik portal that Moscow is not calling for a new resolution on Kosovo but wants everyone involved in resolving the issue to stick to UN Security Council Resolution 1244, adding that a lasting solution can only be found through the dialogue in line with the resolution in the interest of both Serbia and the region.

“When and if a solution is found only by the two sides, Belgrade and Pristina with no outside interference can the UN Security Council confirm that decision in a resolution which is the customary procedure,” the ambassador said, adding that once Belgrade and Pristina reach a stable solution, some parts of UN Security Council Resolution 1244 can be changed but that it’s too soon to discuss details.  

He said that Moscow’s views are almost identical to Belgrade’s and that there is agreement on key issues about Kosovo.  

According to Botsan Harchenko, Russia does not believe that KFOR and EULEX or other international missions should remain in Kosovo permanently.

“Before any decision is taken about Russia’s role in the dialogue we have to know its essence, agenda, that all earlier agreements are being implemented since some key points have not been. Also, the court in the Hague should get to work and not just collect information, creating a semblance of operating,” the Russian ambassador said.
