UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon raised concerns over Kosovo tensions

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon says that vandalism, threats and attacks on facilities of the Serbian Orthodox Church are on the rise in Kosovo, which could make difficult the on-progress Belgrade-Pristina dialogue.

In his latest report, the UN chief says the number of crimes against minority communities increased between February and May 2012 compared to the same period last year.

In the report, which he will present to the Security Council on May 14, the Secretary-General also warns of the negative trend in the process of the return of displaced persons to Kosovo.

Ban Ki-Moon expressed hope that progress on the EU path and normalization of relations between Belgrade and Pristina will ease the tensions.
