ARINJE, Serbia, December 15 (Itar-Tass) — A Russian EMERCOM convoy with humanitarian aid cargoes for Kosovo Serbs remains blocked on the border between Central Serbia and Kosovo.
No new agreements have been reached to allow the convoy to continue the trip.
Some Russian media reported on Wednesday that a decision to solve the problem was found at the Russia-EU summit in Brussels. However, Russian diplomats and EMERCOM representatives at the Jarinje check point did not confirm the information. According to them, the European side continues to insist on their position that the Russian convoy may continue the trip only accompanied by an escort of the EU Rule of Law Mission in Kosovo.
The convoy left the 179th rescue centre based in Noginsk near Moscow for Serbia on December 7. It consists of 25 trucks that carry 284 tonnes of aid cargoes -- electric stations, blankets, food products, kitchen ware and field furniture for Kosovo Serbs.
The convoy is delayed at the Jarinje check point for a third day, as EU mission representatives do not let it go to the territory.
