MOSCOW, February 03. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia has noted some progress achieved in negotiations between Belgrade and Pristina, but alongside it - the difficulties regularly faced by Serbian citizens in Kosovo and Metohija, Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov told Serbian daily Politika.
“We will agree with any results that would suit Serbia. At the same time, the progress made so far should not be sufficient for the international community to be complacent. The world should keep unflagging attention to the situation in Kosovo and Metohija,” Lavrov said.
He added Russia supported the dialogue for the sake of better living conditions in the region, placing special emphasis on making life easier for the Serbian community. However, “the difficulties Serbian citizens face on a daily basis in the region, especially in the enclaves, are still there”.
“Serb religious and cultural heritage sites are still under threat - restoration of Orthodox sacred places under the aegis of UNESCO with support of Russia has been recently completed in the region, and we hope this effort was not in vain,” said Lavrov.
Cases of black market trade in human organs required “rigorous scrutiny”, Russia’s foreign minister said, adding there still were other threats, like illegal weapon and drug trafficking and terrorism.
