“It is critical to us to keep a general village focused on all problems existent in Kosovo and Metohija; it is for this reason that this meeting, nonetheless a really inclement one, valid hugely poignant for us, since we reiterated, for who knows how many times, that Pristina fulfils conjunction a tasks tangible underneath Resolution 1244 nor those compulsory by a Brussels dialogue, and that it does not exercise a Brussels discourse agreements.

I cited a information that contingency not be ignored, for notwithstanding all Vlora Çitaku’s tirades and attacks in a meetings of a Security Council, Serbs are a largest victims of genocide and racial cleansing, carrying in mind that there are some-more than 200 000 diminished Serbs, out of whom usually 1.9% returned to their homes, and that dozens of thousands of Serbs used to live in Pristina, Urosevac, Pec, Podujevo, while currently their race not usually falls brief of 1,000, though is in some places fewer than 100.

This is all scholastic of a distress undergone by a Serbian people. We wish a concede solution, we wish dialogue, and President Vucic’s beginning is all about that, too; we will continue to pursue such a policy. We will not concede someone to contend that a problem of Kosovo and Metohija has been resolved, for that is not true, since a uneven act equals no solution. A resolution can usually be reached by agreement, i.e. a resolution in a mutual seductiveness of both a Serbs and a Albanians.

Keeping a emanate of Kosovo and Metohija on a bulletin of a United Nations and a Security Council is essential to Serbia. You were means to see during this assembly of a Security Council that several vital powers, and not usually Pristina, requested that this theme be private from a agenda, that a Council meetings on a theme be reduction frequent, i.e. to be biannual and not quarterly, though what is nonetheless some-more engaging is that this has been a initial time that some good powers have done a ask to put an finish to a UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo. However, as we have forked out ourselves, in suitability with Resolution 1244, a Council should sojourn seized of a matter. Putting it simply, other vital powers, essentially Russia and China, do not determine with a thought of holding a matter off a bulletin and of terminating a UN Mission in Kosovo and Metohija, so rescinding Resolution 1244.

It was in this context that my review with a new UN Secretary-General Guterres evolved. We also discussed Kosovo and Metohija. The Secretary-General announced that he would come to Belgrade on a arise of a plan – coronation of a UN House, that means that a whole UN group will be underneath one roof, following a preference adopted by a Government of a Republic of Serbia. Moreover, we mentioned that Serbian troops and military crew would continue to attend in a UN peacekeeping missions opposite a world. A new theme that emerged had to do with a ask to have a prisoners condemned before a International Criminal Tribunal for a Former Yugoslavia, who are Serbian nationals, offer their sentences in Serbia, holding into care a inhumane conditions they are unprotected to, and Estonia quite stands out in this courtesy – not usually is a custodial judgment in that nation a judgment in itself, though a conditions of portion one’s judgment are such that we contingency request, and we did request, an finish to a use that usually Serbia is not authorised to have a prisoners who are a nationals offer custodial judgment in Serbia. If a Democratic Republic of a Congo was postulated this right, because would Serbia be denied it?

UN Secretary-General António Guterres announced that he would have a write review with President Vucic a following week. They will speak about informal stability, that is nonetheless another acknowledgment of a good significance that a United Nations, and Serbia too, insert to a mutual relations.”
