Russia hopes that the new president of Kosovo will seek to resolve the situation in the province through negotiations
Russia hopes that the new president of Kosovo will seek to resolve the situation in the province through negotiations, the foreign minister said Monday. In a congratulatory message to the new Kosovo president, Lavrov said Fatmir Sejdiu had been elected at a crucial moment when negotiations on the status of the province were only beginning, the ministry said. The minister said he hoped the president, who was elected on February 10, "will seek negotiations in the interests of steady peace in Kosovo, and security and stability in the entire Balkans." The recent death of Albanian leader Ibrahim Rugova from lung cancer forced the UN to postpone negotiations between Albanian Kosovars and Serbians on the future status of Kosovo, which has been under the UN and NATO control since NATO air strikes on the former Yugoslavia in 1999, in accordance with UN Security Council resolution 1244. The foreign ministers of six nations party to the Contact Group on Kosovo - Russia, the United States, Britain, Germany, Italy and France - met in London in late January to consider the situation.
