This is according to the Serbian Ambassador in Moscow Slavenko Terzic.

According to Russian daily Izvestiya, Terzic also remarked that the answer to the question, "who and why needs a destabilization of the region" should be found.

"What is the geopolitical sense in the obvious process of creating 'a greater Albania'? I think that for this reason, an urgent response of the UN Security Council is needed," the diplomat said.

Terzic also stressed that the existence of double standards when it comes to the West's approach to Kosovo was obvious:

"It's a real pity that we see double standards. On one hand there is the fight against radical Islamism in the Middle East, while on the other the same radical Islamism is being sustained in Kosovo and Metohija. Isn't the destruction of Serbian churches and monuments in Kosovo the same as the destruction of Palmyra?"
