KOSOVO AGAIN ON UN SECURITY COUNCIL AGENDA

The UN Security Council is meeting behind closed doors in New York today to discuss the latest Kosovo developments.
A special session was called on Wednesday, at the request of Russia and Serbia, in connection with announcements regarding the province's ethnic Albanians unilateral declaration of independence, expected "in the near future."
Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic will take part in the meeting and voice Serbia's fierce opposition to the possible declaration of Kosovo independence.
The Serbian ambassador to the UN, Pavle Jevremovic, on Feb. 12 lodged an official request for a Security Council meeting to be held to discuss Kosovo, and the request was supported by Russia.
In a letter to the chairman of the UN Security Council, Jevremovic requested this body to consider "the exceedingly dangerous situation in the Serbian province of Kosovo, where we are witnessing the final preparations for a unilateral declaration of independence."
Jevremovic stated that this declaration of independence would represent a violation of Resolution 1244 of the UN Security Council, which installed a UN administration in Kosovo and allowed the arrival of NATO troops, but guaranteed the territorial integrity of Serbia.
According to reports by foreign news agencies, diplomats in New York do not expect the meeting to result in anyone changing their position regarding this issue.
