The Minister pointed out that Serbia is consistently committed to respecting the principles of international law and the legally binding UN Security Council Resolution 1244.
He emphasised that the presence and activities of UNMIK in Kosovo and Metohija are of key importance for Serbia, since the UN framework, based on this resolution, is a guarantor of the status neutrality of the international presence in the province.
Selakovic also informed his interlocutor about the increasingly frequent attacks on Serbs, their property and Serbian historical, cultural and religious heritage, as well as numerous other incidents witnessed by UNMIK itself, since when Serbia expects to pay more attention to the return of internally displaced persons.
Speaking about the dialogue between Belgrade and Pristina, he said that Serbia is committed to dialogue in order to find a mutually acceptable solution, but that the situation on the Pristina side is not the same.
The Minister reiterated that membership in the European Union is our strategic commitment, expressing hope that the negotiation dynamics will accelerate, especially because Serbia is implementing important reforms and achieving good results, especially in the economic field.
Also, the head of Serbian diplomacy emphasised that Serbia makes an active contribution to world peace and security by participating in multinational UN and EU operations, noting that a total of 4,024 members of the Serbian Army have been deployed in these missions so far.
