The UN Security Council will have an urgent session on Kosovo, requested by Serbia, on Thursday, February 8, Serbian Foreign Minister Ivica Dacic confirmed for the Serbian state TV (RTS).
He said there was strong pressure for the session to be held on camera.
“The position of Western countries and countries from the European Union (EU) is that the session should be closed to the public for reasons known only to them. We believe the reason for this is so the entire world public would not hear about what is happening in Kosovo and Metohija and so that the dissemination of lies in the international media space could continue,” said Dacic.
Noting that Serbia is in for a very difficult battle for Serbia, the Foreign Minister said that he has unofficial information that the meeting will be open to the public after all.
He said Serbia will be represented by President Aleksandar Vucic.
The request for an urgent meeting over the situation in Kosovo was submitted Monday by Serbia’s Ambassador to the UN, Nemanja Stevanovic, through the Mission of Guyana, which holds the rotating presidency of the UN Security Council.
