Prime Minister Ivica Dacic and Foreign Minister Ivan Mrkic are to attend the March 22 Security Council session on the latest report of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on Kosovo.The Security Council session was scheduled for February 22 but was postponed by a month in order to allow the EU-mediated dialogue between Kosovo and Serbia to continue.
In his last quarterly report on Kosovo, Ban Ki-moon said that significant progress had been made by elevating the Belgrade-Pristina dialogue to a higher level.
At the same time he called on the Kosovo government to react firmly to expressions of anti-Serb bigotry, noting incidents that occurred in Kosovo at celebrations of Orthodox Christmas.
Continued dialogue sends a strong signal that both sides support peace and overcoming the burden of the past conflicts, he added.
Turning to the situation in the divided northern town of Mitrovica, the Secretary General said the authorities on all sides needed to act carefully to resolve open issues and avoid further tensions.
