Kosovo: Serbia to discuss Kosovo with UN

A senior United Nations official will meet with Serbian ministers later this month for wide-ranging discussions on Kosovo, which proclaimed its independence a year ago in a move that Serbia rejects.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s Special Representative for Kosovo Lamberto Zannier received an invitation to meet with Serbia’s Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic and Minister for Kosovo Goran Bogdanovic in Belgrade later this month, which he has accepted, the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) announced today.

It said the consultations would broach a broad range of issues relating to Mr. Ban’s most recent report to the Security Council, in which he stressed the need for a reconfiguration of UNMIK after Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia in February last year.
