“‘Russia is always committed to the strict and accurate fulfillment and compliance with the Resolution SC 1244. We support the actions of Belgrade aimed at fulfilling this most important international document,’ the Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov said in Sochi today, where he met with Serbian Minister of Foreign Affairs Ivica Dacic. Lavrov also called on KFOR and EULEX to ‘fully prevent any attempts at violence and vandalism in Kosovo, especially against Serbs and religious sites.’

‘We emphasize the constructive attitude of Belgrade in the negotiations with Pristina under the auspices of the European Union. However, we cannot say the same about the attitude of the Kosovo Albanians, who, for years, have not fulfilled what was agreed earlier. We think that the EU should take full responsibility for this state of affairs and insist on fulfilling the agreed upon,’ Lavrov said at a press conference, after the meeting with Dacic.

When asked by a Russian journalist „how will the delimitation process go, bearing in mind that Albanians want to take control of the Presevo Valley, and in exchange they do not intend to give the North inhabited by Serbs to Serbia,’ Dacic said that “this is proof of how much they are not ready for any compromise at all“.”(KosSev)
