The session, which started on Wednesday, will determine the agenda for the General Conference that will be held in November, RTS is reporting.

Since UNESCO's plenary meetings will start as soon as on Monday, the chances of Pristina applying are minimal, Serbia's ambassador to UNESCO, Darko Tanaskovic, has confirmed.

Tanaskovic said that our delegation has the situation under control, but was at the same time leaving nothing to chance, and will remain on standby until the last moment.

Pristina will have an opportunity to fight this fight again in two years time. In 2015, the membership bid failed by only three votes.
