BELGRADE, April 17. /TASS/. Weapons supplies to Kosovo from the United States and the United Kingdom run counter to United Nations Security Council resolution 1244, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic said on Sunday.
"Britain supplied NLAW (man-portable anti-tank missile systems), which proved themselves as dangerous, including in Ukraine. The United States supplied armored vehicles. Turkey trains soldiers. Is resolution 1244 still in force?" he said in an interview with TV Pink.
The Serbian leader recalled that under resolution 1244 only one military force - NATO’s Kosovo Force (KFOR) - van be present in Kosovo and Metohija. However, in violation of this resolution Pristina is forming its own army with the West’s support.
Serbia’s Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija unilaterally proclaimed independence in February 2008, which was recognized by the United Nations Court of Justice in 2010. However, more than 60 countries, including Russia, China, India, and five European Union member states are categorically against recognizing Kosovo’s independence. Earlier, Israel was against recognizing Kosovo’s independence. Nevertheless, Kosovo has been seeking to join international organizations, including UNESCO and Interpol.
