Kosovo: Serbia promises not to target Kosovo's economy

Serbia has said it will not target Kosovo's economy by imposing embargos.

Serbia's foreign minister, told the UN Security Council: "It is in our vital interest that all of Kosovo's communities prosper, and prosper together in peace, security and reconciliation as neighbours in a progressive society of hope and forgiveness," Vuk Jeremic said.

His statement appears to be a U turn after Serbia previously warned it would use all economic, political and diplomatic means at its disposal to prevent the secession.
