Bernard Kouchner, chairing yesterday’s meeting of EU foreign ministers in Brussels, made the plea to Serbian counterpart Vuk Jeremić.
Kouchner said that it was surprising that Serbia was intending to seek the support of the UN General Assembly in asking the International Court of Justice (ICJ) to give its view on the decision of certain countries to recognize Kosovo’s unilateral independence.
Jeremić said that the Serbian government was absolutely determined to defend and respect international law when it came to the country’s sovereignty and territorial integrity, and a final settlement for Kosovo’s status.
