Russia to consider any option of Kosovo settlement acceptable for Serbia, says minister

MOSCOW, November 17.

Moscow is ready to consider any option of settling the Kosovo crisis that will be acceptable for Belgrade, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with The Serbian Telegraph newspaper.

“Our position regarding Kosovo is well-known, it relies on the international law, first of all the UN Security Council’s Resolution 1244. We consistently provide comprehensive support to the Serbian friends in the efforts aimed at advocating Serbia’s legal interests both through the bilateral line and in international organizations. If Belgrade finds any settlement option appropriate for Serbia we will be ready to consider it constructively,” he said when asked whether Moscow is ready to support Belgrade’s proposal to settle the Kosovo issue through demarcation between Serbians and Albanians.

According to Lavrov, it is improper to speculate about possible contents of this or that option.
